    Gary Barlow has confirmed that he is re-releasing his two solo albums.
    The singer admitted that he hopes there will be renewed interest in his solo projects following Take That's popularity since they reformed in 2006.
    "I have just signed to re-release new versions of the two solo albums," he told the Daily Star. "Fingers crossed someone buys them."
    Barlow's debut solo album Open Road topped the chart in 1997. His follow-up Twelve Months, Eleven Days only managed to reach number 35 two years later and he was subsequently dropped by his record label.
    The 38-year-old later compared his failed second effort to having leprosy.
    "Nobody wants anything to do with [you] whatsoever - it's like having leprosy. Nobody wants any connection with you whatsoever," he told Metro.

    Kevin Federline is reportedly planning to rap about his divorce from Britney Spears on his forthcoming album.
    The 31-year-old, who split from Spears in 2006, is currently collaborating with hip-hop group Bones Thugs-N-Harmony on a follow-up to his debut LP Playing With Fire.
    Speaking to HipHopDx, group member Krayzie Bone said: "People gon say Im crazy, man but to my surprise the stuff that he let me hear, it was pretty really deep.
    "He was talking about his life. He was actually telling his side of the story [of the split] in a more mature, adult kind of way, opposed to just being on the record saying 'F**k Britney.'"
    The rapper added: "He told me that he didnt get a chance to really put out the music he wanted to [with his first album], and he made mistakes in putting out the music that he did - you know, by putting out the club stuff."
    Playing With Fire, released in 2006, was widely panned by critics, entering the US chart at number 151.

    Mark Owen has started attending a mother-and-baby group in South London, claim tabloid reports.
    According to The Sun, the Take That star is a regular at Monday meetings with his two-year-old son Elwood.
    "The Monday classes used to be very low-key," said a source. "Everyone would turn up without a scrap of make-up and wearing any old clobber.
    "Looking glamorous was never top of anyone's priorities. But since Mark began showing up that's changed hugely. It can be like a fashion show some weeks."
    The insider added: "All the women want Mark to do a bit of singing for the Monday group, but everyone has so far been too shy to ask him.
    "He is a lovely chap so no-one wants to impose, but he is going to be asked soon."
    Owen and long-term partner Emma Ferguson also have four-month-old daughter Willow Rose.

    Timbaland has reportedly filed a lawsuit against his record label, accusing them of trying to ruin his career.
    The producer has claimed that Blackground Records became jealous and hostile toward him as his career took off.
    The star, real name Timothy Mosley, filed the case in the Florida Federal District Court claiming the record label had contacted other companies urging them not to employ him.
    Furthermore, he is seeking an unspecified amount in unpaid royalties and a termination of his contract.
    Timbaland was reportedly sued recently after failing to pay a Florida florist $10,000 (£6,892) for Christmas decorations.


    Now I am a Take That fan so am biaised but I have to say that Mark Owen going to a toddler group is really sweet and shows how down to earth he is, not many dads go to these groups and especially not internationally famous ones, I think it's hilarious that the mums are now all dressing up - lol.
