Lily Allen has taken to Twitter to criticise Gary Barlow, voicing her dismay at the Take That singer’s alleged tax-dodging and later adding further comments criticising David Cameron's reaction to the news.

Plenty of Twitter users have used the social networking site to share their thoughts on the matter and now Lily, who is currently suffering from food poisoning, has given her thoughts.
“I dedicate my next sick to to you lot. #taxdodging,” she wrote, adding: “Can't get through to NHSDirect , no midwives in your area ? Well at least the Queen got a nice birthday party/jubilee , whatever @GaryBarlow.”
She later added: "Whatever you think about Gary Barlow, who i'm sure went into this tax relief scheme completely innocently, When the prime minister, THE.PRIME.MINISTER essentially says it's alright not to pay tax when your such a "good bloke", that's not dope".
Gary, Mark Owen and Howard Donald, along with their manager, all reportedly invested in a £66 million Icebreaker Management partnership, which was billed as a music-industry investment scheme.

However, a court ruling on 9 May 2014 decided that the partnership was actually a tax avoidance scheme for the ‘ultra-rich’.
Gary and the rest of the band are yet to comment on the matter, and Jason Orange and former Take That singer Robbie Williams are not involved.
“Gary Barlow has done a huge amount for charity, raising a huge amount for Children in Need,” he said.
Lily’s recent illness has been the focus of many of her social media updates in recent weeks and the star has even shared a Miley Cyrus-style selfie, taken on her hospital bed.
Gary started off his pop career in the 1990s toned and slim.
In the heyday of Take That Gary was still getting exercise with strenuous dance routines.
With the end of Take That, Gary began to comfort eat to fill the gap.
By 1999, with his career flagging, Gary's double chin grew prominently as seen here at the Mardi Gras festival in London's Finsbury Park.
Even when Gary began to lose his boyband figure his wife Dawn stood by him 'through thick and thin' he said.
With Gary's career back on track, he slimmed down to be able to go back on tour with a very successful reunion.
Gary looks tanned and relaxed as he grows into his role as a straight-talking critic on the hit talent show, the X Factor.
By now, Gary is the mature hunk the X Factor has been drooling over. At the age of 40, Gary is looking better than ever.
