Gary Barlow's World Cup Song Flops - 'Greatest Day' Removed From iTunes Before Tournament Begins

Gary Barlow's official World Cup anthem has been given the boot.

Despite recruiting nearly two dozen celebrities to perform his Take That hit 'Greatest Day', Gary's song failed to score with fans, and has now been removed from iTunes - before the tournament's even begun.

Gary Lineker and Kimberley Walsh were among the celebs who joined Gary for the singalong, which was released for last month's Sport Relief. The Sun reports that Sports Relief have confirmed they have ditched plans to release the single, although the video will remain on YouTube.

Gary Barlow - not having a good month

This is all another twist in the road for Gary who, this time two years ago, was riding high as the organiser of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee musical celebrations, and awarded with an OBE for his efforts.

Since then, he's been slammed for perceived tax avoidance, for his participation in a money investment scheme which stored millions of pounds for him and his bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald, many of which the High Court has now ordered they must repay.

And, just to add to his thrills, Robbie Williams has confirmed he won't be joining the rest of the band for the follow-up to their highly successful reunion album and tour, as his wife has her second baby on the way.
