Subscribe to Gary Barlow alerts

British singer Gary Barlow has jetted out to Afghanistan to meet U.K. troops deployed in the war zone.

The Take That star boarded a plane straight after completing his judging duties on The X Factor on Sunday night (27Oct13) and spent Monday chatting with members of the British Army, Navy and Air Force.

Barlow posed for pictures with soldiers and signed Cds for members of their families.

The secret visit came to light after troops posted snaps of themselves with the star on social networking websites. The trip was recorded as part of a special show set to air on Britain's Itv network later this year (13).

A representative for the channel says, "We can confirm Gary is doing a one-off special to broadcast on Itv later in the year. Owing to security restrictions it would be inappropriate to release any further information at this stage."
