Gazza can't believe his luck
Gary Barlow has been awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
The X Factor judge, who was recently tasked with organising the Diamond Jubilee concert, said he was "thrilled" to receive the accolade.
In a press statement, he said: "I'm absolutely thrilled and feel very privileged to be in the company of so many brilliant people who I know have received an OBE.
"Growing up I never dreamt that one day I'd be getting one myself.
"I enjoy every minute of the work I do, with a lot of it being a reward in itself, so for somebody to decide I should get recognised for that is just amazing. My family are very proud."
Other than organising the Jubilee concert, the Take That star was asked to co-write Sing, the official anthem for the event, with Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The 41-year-old singer was the subject of a Twitter campaign, which called for the star to gain a knighthood. His outspoken fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh even joked on set along with the other judges by calling Gazza 'Sir'.
So what do you think: Is it only a matter of time before our Gaz gets the full whammy? OBE for now, Sir next year, maybe?!
