Take That fan pays £1.1 million for a private show



A fan has paid a whopping £1.1 million to have Take That play a private show, in aid of Children in Need.

Gary Barlow was shocked when he was told the news – while locked in the toilet of his gym.

Businesswoman Elaine Fairfax, from London, placed the winning bid live on Chris Evans’s Radio 2 breakfast show.

“No way … Oh my God,” said Gary, when Chris told him the news.

The set will mark the first time Take That have performed a private show for a competition winner since the early days of their career.

“The last time we did something like this was in 1991 for Jackie magazine,” said Gary.

The prize came about after Chris emailed the suggestion to Gary, who replied yes in just four minutes after phoning bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald.
