Take That’s Gary Barlow was so desperate to get noticed in his early career, he sent topless pictures to gay music bosses.
The British singer was keen to land himself a record deal in the 1980s and was sending out a load of demo tapes.
When that didn’t work, he figured out he should send half-naked pictures to attract the attention of some music bigwigs.
And it worked.
Nigel Martin-Smith, the gay former Take That manager, took an interest in the young straight singer.
