Gary Barlow and his wife Dawn were this week mourning the loss of their daughter Poppy, who was delivered stillborn on Saturday 4 August.

Condolences from fans and celebrity friends poured in for the Barlows, and Gary has now taken to Twitter to thank everyone for their support.

"Your kind words and lovely messages are overwhelming. Thank you," he posted on the social networking site.

A source close to Gary's Take That band mates also told The Mirror that "they are all utterly distraught for Gary".

"The boys are such a tight bunch and this has really knocked them all for six. They will always be there for him."

It is unsure as yet whether Gary will join the rest of the group at the Olympics Closing ceremony on Sunday night, as they are rumoured to be performing.

Fans of the singer and X Factor judge have also showed their support by setting up a Just Giving page for people to donate money in order to raise awareness of stillbirth: the page is called 'For Poppy Barlow', and has raised well over £3,000.

This is something the family will never get over unfortunately. We lost a baby partway through pregnancy, and three years later we are still grieving, even though we were just heading into the 2nd trimester. Losing a child is the worst thing in the world a parent could ever go through in my opinion, and it's so sad that anyone has to go through it.

May their baby Poppy sleep in peace with the Angels, as does my little Bonni. God took his little treasures home to keep them safe. Prayers for every parent out there who has ever gone through this terrible tragedy xx

I had so many fears when I was with child, and this was one of them: Stillbirth. I understand what they're going through because, personally, I would be truly devastated. I hope they have the strength to move on together with their young family. Bless.

theres some sicko's out there writing crap like its what you deserve!!! i dont know how these people dare. theres people commenting on this story that dont know him (myself included) and yes all we get is what the media portray him to be. BUT at the end of the day its a family that have lost a baby. ITs a child that has died before its time. and no matter who you are or how much money you have, nothing takes that pain away. so all you idiots writing crap on this story should be ashamed of yourselves. i just hope to god it doesnt happen to any of you because like one sicko stated instant karma is gonna get you. RIP Poppy Barlow and all the other angels taken away too soon.

G man, just want you to know. ( sung to the tune of Ole Black Magic)
         When your weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry dem all.
  I'll take your wife, when darkness falls, and pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled waters, I will lay ye down.

                  Peace Man.

Gary,  we'd all understand if you wanted to "Let It Be" so to speak on X factor this season BUT you wouldn't get paid then....... and after all is said and  done its the money that matters to you so.......
   "make it your own up there" and "play that role".......  the sheeple will keep phoning in.....
               ............"Here comes the Sun"   

PS  I think Tulisa is up for it .......... ( help with the grief etc etc etc)
