The Take That frontman and his wife Dawn have been left devastated after their fourth child Poppy was delivered stillborn on Saturday and their friends have rallied round to provide support.

Lord Lloyd Webber - who co-wrote Diamond Jubilee single Sing - tweeted: "Dearest Dawn & Gary, Madeleine & I are devastated about news of Poppy. Our thoughts & prayers are with you and your family. (sic)"

Proud hitmakers JLS - comprising Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Oritse Williams and JB Gill - sent their "thoughts and prayers" to the heartbroken couple.
