Jubilee Concert organiser Gary Barlow fears the rest of his career will fail to live up to the extravaganza at Buckingham Palace on Monday night.

But the Take That star was grinning as he arrived for the latest X Factor audition in Manchester, today.

Barlow earned plaudits for his handling of the royal concert which was staged outside Buckingham Palace, in central London.

“It’s going to take something pretty special to top it,” he admitted.

Entertainers such as Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Tom Jones featured, while Madness played on the palace roof.

Barlow, 41, labelled the Monday night show: “the biggest night of my life”.
