VERDICT Legendary Gary Barlow celebrated his 22nd wedding anniversary with his wife Dawn by posting a photo of the day they met.
The singer, 50, posted the snap back to his Instagram page, along with a more recent photo of him with former dancer Dawn celebrating their special day.
He captioned the post: “Congratulations on the 22nd wedding anniversary of Mrs.B❤️.
“Well, we’ve had a while. So many adventures. 4 beautiful kids. This is the next 22nd and beyond.
“Check out the photos of the day we first met – 1988!!! Shocking!!! ❤️❤️❤️.”
Old-school photos show young Gary standing between two dancers – unaware that one of them has been set up to be his future wife.
One photo shows Dawn standing close to Gary, as she looks over his shoulder during a photo and video session in front of Take That.
The couple met again in 1992 while rehearsing for the Royal Children’s Variety Show.
But it wasn’t until 1995, when Dawn accompanied Take That as a backup dancer on a European tour, that they got together.
Jason Orange hired Dawn, not realizing that she had previously met Gary.
The couple first publicly dated at the 1996 Brit Awards but fans still don’t know who she is.
Gary later admitted “I was completely surrounded right away.”
They got married in 2000 and have three children together – Daniel 21, Emily 19, and Daisy 12.
Their fourth child, Poppy, died in April 2012.
Gary credits Dawn for supporting his career and being there for him through his weight problems and depression.
The male singer went through a difficult time when he was dumped by the record label in 2000.
He told Events Magazine: “I remember waking up one morning and I was huge.
“I’m a mess and I think, I’m not the man she married. It was Dawn who took me to the doctor and it was because of Dawn that I went.
