Gary Barlow fans were disappointed when he was unable to perform in bbc breakfast due to technical problems.
Heartthrob Take That was on the show on Friday (March 18) to talk about his one-man show, a different stage, and was going to perform live on his keyboard.
However, it turned out that it had no charger.

Host Charlie Stayt told viewers: “Gary Barlow is here, as you can see, the man with the keyboard arrives in the studio. You brought your little keyboard with you, but the sad thing is…”
“It does not work!” Barlow joked.
The star, 51, explained that he was given the keyboard as a child and that it was his “entrance into music”.
As he wrapped up his interview, Stayt said, “I’m so disappointed we didn’t have the right charger for your keyboard.”
“Next time, next time,” Barlow replied, adding, “Nobody said bring the charger.”
Host Stayt said that he had assumed it would be battery-powered, and the singer replied that it was from the 1980s.
Naga Munchetty chimed in: “They had drums in the 1980s!”
“We’ll figure it out next time,” Barlow promised.
Despite not being able to see him sing on his keyboard, Barlow’s fans were thrilled to see him on the show.
“Gary Barlow always comes across as a gentleman and a nice guy in every way,” one tweeted. “I love his music and his creativity.”
