LIFE STORIES Our take on this year’s most anticipated A-list autobiographies
Who: One fifth, then one fourth, then one third, of Take That.
In a nutshell: An update of his 2006 autobiography, My Take, but with more chat about his struggle with pies. Life lessons: Gary’s tried almost every diet going. His epiphany? Don’t trust the word diet. And only eat “real” foods. Gazza, we don’t need another Gillian McKeith. Celebrity mentions: Well, he’s met the Queen… Take That fan? You’ll enjoy the titbits about Mark Owen giving great hugs but rarely giving them out, Robbie always emailing in caps lock and Howard’s seeds once being mistaken for drugs at the airport. Oh, and then there’s the time Jasmine Hemsley was very worried about Kelly Rowland’s bowel movements. Wild stories: Scant. It seems that aside from smoking the odd joint in the ’90s, Barlow’s vice really is just… pies. £20, Blink
