Take That star Gary Barlow is reportedly struggling to keep up with the group's vigorous dance routines - because he's too fat.
The singer and bandmates Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange are preparing to tour for the first time in a decade.
But 35-year-old Barlow is said to be having a tough time getting back in shape - despite insisting the band include the energetic numbers they were famous for during the 90s.
Owen has allegedly told friends the group is worried they will not be ready for their 11 show reunion tour, which starts in Newcastle next month.
A source is quoted in Britain's The People newspaper as saying: "Gary had let himself go a bit over the past 10 years and has found it a lot tougher than he originally thought.Everyone is keeping their fingers crossed he'll get there - but time is running out."
