Gary Barlow has paid tribute to his wife Dawn on their 22nd wedding anniversary, and it’s extremely adorable.


The singer and former X Factor judge, 50, shared a picture of them celebrating the milestone with cocktails.

Walk The Line star Gary wore a blue shirt and cream cardigan with a star pattern, while his wife wore a black shirt with a pink and purple floral motif, as both raised their glasses towards the camera for a selfie.

Two other photos showed the day they met for the first time in 1988, while Dawn was working as a dancer for Take That.

In the throwback photos, Gary – who was then just 17 – wears black trainers, dark baggy trousers and a zip-up jacket, while Dawn is in a crop-top, tights and black tights, with her hair short and curly as she still styles it today.

In the accompanying caption the chart-topper wrote: ‘Happy 22nd Wedding Anniversary Mrs.B. Well what a time we’ve had. So many adventures. 4 beautiful children.

‘Here’s to the next 22 and beyond. Check out the pics of the day we first met – 1988 !!! Shocking!!!’

Followers and famous friends left their well wishes in the comments, with Gary’s fellow Walk The Line judge Craig David commenting with a string of red heart emojis.

‘22 years ❤️❤️❤️,’ wrote former BBC Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton. ‘I remember your 10 th wedding anniversary party like it was yesterday! 😮 gorgeous pictures of you both ❤️.’

Gary also shared some extra photos on his Stories, including a shot of their matching wrist tattoos of a heart and each other’s first initial as they held hands, and selfies of the couple out and about over the years, including another photo from back in the days of pre-break up Take That.
