Barlow Hopes To Recover Before Charity Climb

TAKE THAT star GARY BARLOW is hoping to make a quick recovery after injuring his back days before he embarks on a charity mission to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
The British singer's plans to scale the 19,000-foot (5,890 metre) peak in Africa were thrown into jeopardy after he injured his fourth vertebra, throwing his muscles into spasm.
But the star remains optimistic he will be able to reach the peak's summit on Friday (27Feb09).
He says, "I can't believe it - we've all been training for about six months and right at the last minute I put my back out.
"But I'm healing every day. I've had a trapped nerve in January and my back went into spasm - but we've got seven days to go before I leave so I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be fine."
Barlow and a host of other U.K. celebrities - including Girls Aloud singers Kimberley Walsh and Cheryl Cole, and Boyzone star Ronan Keating - are carrying out their ascent to raise money for British organisation Comic Relief.
