Gary Barlow has achieved what is thought to be his worst ever performance in the UK singles chart - failing to even make the top 100. The Take That singer and former X Factor judge released Since I Saw You Last last week, the third release from his album of the same name.

But despite extensive airplay, the track only charted at 129. It has performed even more poorly than his previous single Face To Face, a collaboration with Sir Elton John which made it to number 80 in January.

His new single had been given a place on the A playlist for Britain's biggest radio station, Radio 2, which would mean it would be played between 15 and 20 times to the station's audience. But the track didn't make the weekend's Official Singles Chart and its low placing has now emerged.

However, Gary Barlow can take some comfort from the strong sales for his album - his first solo effort for 14 years - which was 2013's ninth biggest seller.

Twilight star Kellan Lutz shows off baby Tarzan moves

Twilight alumnus Kellan Lutz said the hardest thing about his latest movie was "learning to walk like Tarzan" as he beat his chest for Daybreak.

Asked if he could give the viewers a demonstration of the famous move, the actor laughed, "I'd rip this shirt".

But Lutz, who stars as the jungle dweller in the upcoming Tarzan film, did oblige by showing off "a little one".

When Aled Jones joked, "That's like the most pathetic Tarzan," Lutz retorted, "I was a baby!"
