London, June 17 (ANI): Take That star Gary Barlow has a thing about… ballet pumps.

The 37-year-old has developed an unhealthy aversion to the flat footwear. In fact, he hates them so much that he banned people from wearing them backstage during the band’s Circus tour, reports The Mirror.

A source said: “Gary can’t stand the sight of ballet pumps. It may sound odd but he cannot bear them.

“He thinks they’re incredibly unflattering. In his eyes, even the most attractive woman in the world would be pug ugly if she was wearing pumps.

“At one of their recent after-show parties, a dancer was kicking back in some pastel ballet pumps, and Gary had to leave the room.

“His wife Dawn owns a pair and Gary jokes that he’ll divorce her if she buys any more. And he can’t be seen with her when she does wear them.

“All 230-odd cast and crew have been told to stick to trainers or heels when not on stage.

“The other lads find it hilarious and keep taking the mick, but Gary is adamant: dump the pump.” (ANI)
