Gary Barlow's rep has confirmed that the Take That star will not attend tomorrow's X Factor press launch in London. They said in a statement: "Due to personal circumstances Gary Barlow won’t be attending the press launch for The X Factor this week but he has been in touch with production to wish everyone well."

Gary has been keeping a low profile since his baby daughter Poppy was delivered stillborn earlier this month. He upheld his commitment to perform at the Olympic closing ceremony on Sunday to great applaud from the public, who praised his bravery at appearing on stage during such a difficult time.

He took to Twitter on Monday to thank fans for their support, saying: "My gorgeous fans and followers, your kindness and support is immense, God bless you all."

We're thinking of you, Gary - sending you and Dawn all our love... RM
