A Robbie Williams look-a-like surprised Gary Barlow on Let It Shine this evening.

After coming face to face with his very own tribute act last week, this Saturday night saw Gary confronted with another familiar face.


Singer Dan Budd from Stoke-On-Trent was one of the latest batch of guys to sing for the Let It Shine judges on this weekend's show.

Dan was seen singing Robbie's classic song 'No Regrets' for Gary and his fellow judges; Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp, former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue and West End singer and star of Glee Amber Riley.

Gary reacted: "Good grief, you look like a friend of mine. I'm scared to ask what you do for a living."

Dan is more than just a look-a-like for Robbie, performing as a tribute act to Gary's former bandmate.

His website describes him as "one of the most entertaining, charismatic and energetic Robbie Williams tribute acts currently performing on the UK entertainment circuit today."


After the performance, Gary said: "You an amazing impersonator. It's unbelievable how much you sound and look like Rob."

However he added: "We're trying to create this musical featuring the music but by against everything I'm trying to do. Whether we can de-robbie you"

Dan ended with 16 stars, enough to progress through to the next round but Gary only gave 3 of those marks.

But he eventually admitted: "I should have given you a five."


Other hopefuls on the show this week included West End performer Matt Thorpe former X Factor boy band member AJ Bentley and hunky performer Hercules Smith.

Let It Shine continues on TV on BBC One on Saturday, January 28 at 7PM with the final round of auditions.
