He may be approaching 50 in the next year or two, but there's no doubt that Gary Barlow is in the best shape of his life.

However, those of us old enough to remember his post-Take That phase will remember that that wasn't always the case for the 47-year-old, and he weighed 16st 11lbs at his heaviest.

To remind himself why he's pursuing a healthier lifestyle, he shared a throwback photo on Instagram from that era revealing that he felt 'awful' and vowing: "I will never allow myself to feel like that again."

It's quite a transformation, in fairness.
