The Take That singer was on his way to Cheshire for the next show of the tour when he went through the town dubbed 'The Capital of the Fens', which happens to be the birth place of one of his musicians, Mike Stevens.

Barlow tweeted alongside a photo: 'Just passing the birth place of the great @Saxes1 not seen the statue yet #theladsdonewell.'

Stevens, who is best known as Take That's musical director, has also worked with Eurythmics, Will Young and Boyzone and has also released a number of solo albums.

Thousands of people descended on Thetford Forest for the show over the weekend which featured some of Barlow's solo hits as well as Take That classics such as Relight My Fire, Never Forget and Back For Good.

After the show he tweeted: 'Another first - and what a night we had in Thetford Forest - thank you.'
