Being one of the most sought-after men in the country with an endless pot of cash must bring a multitude of problems - so, Gary Barlow needs all the support he can get from his friends and family.

However, The X Factor judge has revealed that his wife is completely unfazed by his enormous fame.

The 40-year-dad claims that his wife is far more impressed when he brews her a cup of tea or makes the bed than how many albums he's sold.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said: "She is so unimpressed by everything my wife is. If I ever did come home and say, 'Babe, we've sold two million albums today,' it would be like, 'Well, can you just finish the kids' tea?'

"None of this success figures in our lives. It's just the pantomime that goes with what I do."

But Gary does admit the lack of excitement surrounding his fame from wife Dawn and kids Daniel, 11, Emily, nine, and two-year-old Daisy keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

Good job Dawn! Gary's head judge role on The X Factor could have gone to his head.
