The Take That star, who performed a concert at the base, was filming for a one-off television programme for ITV to be broadcast later this year.

He also took time out of his three-day visit to go on a five-kilometre run with some of the squaddies.

He later tweeted: “Just got back from an incredible trip to meet the troops in Afghanistan. What an amazing experience and a lovely bunch of people. Thank you Camp Bastion!”
