It took more than a year to organise, and now Gary Barlow is getting an official thank you for organising the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert - with a bit of help from Hampshire's Lord Lloyd Webber.

Gary will get an OBE after the spectacular event at Buckingham Palace on Monday, which included performances from stars including Sir Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Stevie Wonder and Cheryl Cole.

He also wrote the commemorative song 'Sing' along with Andrew Lloyd Webber, who lives at Watership Down near Newbury, which features 210 voices from the Commonwealth.
