It is "not necessary" for Gary Barlow to return his OBE despite his involvement in an aggressive tax avoidance scheme, the Prime Minister has told Good Morning Britain.
David Cameron said the Take That singer had "done a huge amount for the country".
But the Prime Minister said the scheme that Barlow and bandmates Howard Donald and Mark Owen invested in was clearly "wrong" and said: "It's right that they are going to have to pay back the money."
The Take That trio may have to pay back £26 million after Judge Colin Bishop ruled that 51 partnerships set up by Icebreaker Management were used for tax avoidance purposes.
