BREAKING NEWS! Gary Barlow has now donated his Jubilee shoes to the auction…this is awesome! The signed shoes were specially made for the Take That lead singer and have the Union Jack and lyrics of Sing, the Jubilee song, inscribed on the sole. These one of a kind shoes will go onto eBay on Tuesday 10th July for two weeks to allow as many fans as possible the opportunity to bid.
Gary recently received an OBE in recognition of his efforts in organising the musical extravaganza and writing the commemorative song Sing.
