Yesterday Gary Barlow got stranded on an island in the Solomons in the Pacific after discovering that he was directly in the path an approaching cyclone. He was there for a tour of the Commonwealth, and had filming commitments, as he’s hosting a documentary in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee. As the weather took a turn for the worse, he had to ask to be sent help in the shape of a search and rescue team.
The ‘X Factor‘ judge tweeted about being greeted by heavy rain and wind on Friday: “We’re stranded on an island in the Solomons. There’s a cyclone heading our way and there’s no way off. Gonna have to sit it out! Powers back on. The lovely government here are sending a search and rescue boat for us this morning…adventure.”
