Gary Barlow has sparked ridicule from fans by announcing his hopes for another hit – this time by launching his very own wine.
The singer, 50, who boasts of a 30-year passion for wine, has revealed he hopes to appeal to the masses with his budget tipple, which will be available for just £8 in Morrisons supermarkets.
Gary revealed he intends to appeal to the masses with crowd-pleasing wine from Spain, simply named Gary Barlow Organic, which is complete with a fitting piano key label.

Barlow said: ‘After months of learning about the process and tasting different blends, I’m very proud to now launch my own range of organic wines from Spain.’
The red, made from tempranillo and syrah grapes, is described as having a ‘rich, smooth’ flavour ‘rendolent of bright, autumnal evenings with layers of damson, cocoa and rosemary’, finishing on ‘a bright note of fresh cranberries’.
Meanwhile, Barlow’s white – a blend of verdejo and viura grapes – is ‘overflowing with uplifting aromas of green apple and lime blossom’, along with lemon zest, pear and melon.
Barlow worked with winemaker Paul Schaafsma, of Benchmark Drinks, who has previously created wines with Sir Ian Botham and Kylie Minogue.
