Take That star to be animated for musical appearance in preschool show.
Take That star Gary Barlow is joining the voice cast of preschool show Daisy & Ollie for its Christmas special.
The singer-songwriter has been animated by the team at CHF Entertainment to star in the musical Christmas episode, which is due to air on Cartoonito on December 1.
Gary will sing a song written by Jason Manford – who voices ‘Daisy’s Daddy’ – and the team in the episode, entitled ‘What’s so great about Christmas anyway?’.
“I was absolutely thrilled when Jason asked me to be part of the Daisy & Ollie Christmas special, especially as a cartoon version of myself,” said Gary. “It was great fun and a heart-warming show. I can’t wait to watch it with my family during the Christmas period.”
Jason added: “Bringing in a huge star like Gary brings that festive touch of sparkle a Christmas episode needs. I can’t wait for the viewers’ reactions when they see Gary in the show, the animators have done an incredible job creating his character – it looks just like him.”
