Gary Barlow

X Factor 2012 bosses have vowed to give Gary Barlow "as much time as needs" after the death of his newborn baby.

Gary and his dancer wife Dawn revealed the devastating news earlier this week that new daughter Poppy had been stillborn.

A source close to the show's production team told the Daily Mirror this week: "We will move the dates if we need to.

"It’s not a problem at all – we will give Gary as much time as he needs after the news. We are all there for him.”

The newspaper reports that Gary's Take That bandmates have been supporting him and his wife through the trauma.

"They are all utterly distraught for Gary," a source revealed. “The boys are such a tight bunch and this has really knocked them all for six. They will always be there for him.”

Meanwhile Gary Barlow took to Twitter yesterday to thank the thousands of fans who had sent him messages of support.

He said: "Your kind words and lovely messages are overwhelming. thank you."
