A senior Royal source told the Sun: "The Queen was delighted with Gary Barlow's brilliant work and dedication. She made it clear he should be rewarded at the first available opportunity. Mr Barlow was told of Her Majesty's offer a few weeks ago. He was quite surprised, but he has accepted it."

Gary Barlow's accepted the OBE? Hardly surprising.

The X Factor judge spent more than a year working on the Diamond Jubilee Concert and travelled the Commonwealth to record the hit song 'Sing'. He even got Prince Harry to play the tambourine.

Gary Barlow's OBE also recognises the singer's successful music career both solo and with Take That.
