Gary Barlow admits flying fear

Gary Barlow admitted he is scared of flying

Gary Barlow has confessed that he is terrified of flying.

The Take That singer revealed that despite being an international star who has to jet all over the world he has a real phobia of being on a plane, and has signed up for a course to help him tackle his fear.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I'm scared of flying - especially the take-off. I just don't like it, and yet I have to do so much of it. I get really nervous. Maybe it's because I'm scared of dying.

"I do just get on with it and do it because I have to, really, but I don't like it and it kind of ruins the whole day because I'm working myself up so much about getting on a plane."

Dad-of-three Gary, 42, has now enrolled on a fear of flying course with Virgin and has high hopes that it will help him to get his nerves under control when he next takes to the skies.

" Apparently, once you've done it you're never worried again," said the X Factor judge. "They talk you through all the noises and explain that this thing is happening for that reason. I don't know if it's hypnotherapy or what exactly they do, but it's meant to be brilliant and only takes an hour."
