Gary Barlow Has Bingo Party

Gary Barlow celebrated his tenth wedding anniversary with a game of bingo.

The Take That star celebrated the milestone date with wife Dawn this week by hiring a function room at London's exclusive Mandarin Oriental hotel and holding a contest of the gambling game - where players mark off numbers on a ticket as they are randomly called out - on Tuesday night (12.01.10).

All money raised from the evening by the star-studded guest list, which included his Take That bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald and Cheryl Cole and her soccer star husband Ashley Cole, giving all the money raised to charity.

The 38-year-old singer also put some of his guests up for the night.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "He spent a lot of money to make sure Dawn had a party to remember, treating her to a couple of nights in the hotel's most luxurious suite. Gary hosted the bingo, calling the numbers out. All the cards and dabbers were on their tables and they all got into the spirit of things."

Other guests included Fearne Cotton, Ronan Keating, Denise Van Outen and Alesha Dixon who all took part in a charity climb of Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief.

Tears were also shed when bandmates Howard and Mark got up and gave a speech for their friend and his wife.

All proceeds from the event went to Barnardo's, Gary's charity of choice.
