Gary Barlow has whisked his X Factor contestants off to America for the Judges’ Houses section of the TV talent show. This weekend the Take That singer will decide the fate of the final six groups in the competition from the comfort of a slick, camera-festooned New York property.
Back in London, the 42-year-old and his wife Dawn have an impressive semi-detached house off Kensington Church Street. They live just around the corner from Gary’s bandmates Howard Donald and Jason Orange, and are conveniently close to Simon Cowell’s Syco company HQ in Derry Street.
The Barlows’ three-storey gem has more rooms tucked away at the bottom of its sweet garden but Gary, who releases his new solo album on November 25, is keen to create extra space. He is thought to have been granted planning permission to extend his house.
