He’s previously admitted to having a fear of flying.
The singer was jetting from Los Angeles to London with Take That bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald when their plane was forced to make an emergency landing.
We’d have been *seriously* freaking out!
The lads had been working on their new album across the pond and boarded the Airbus A380, probably hoping to get a nice bit of shut-eye.
But disaster stuck when the pilot discovered a technical fault with the plane and had to divert from his course to BLIMMIN’ CANADA.
This can’t have been good for Gazza’s nerves!
Once the flight landed safely (phew) at Toronto airport and the fault was fixed they had just set off again when MORE DRAMA HAPPENED.
Instead of heading back to London, the poor Take That boys were flown to Ireland, as the crew had been on board for too long.
Bet Gazza was having babies!
Another plane then arrived to jet the remaining passengers back to Heathrow after a rather long wait.
All in all their journey from LA back to Blighty took a (pretty ridiculous) 24 hours… causing the poor lads A LOT of stress.
But we feel for Gary the most as he has had a serious fear of flying for years, and has even resorted to hypnotism to battle his phobio.
He told The Mirror: “I’m scared of flying – especially the take-off. I just don’t like it, and yet I have to do so much of it. I get really nervous. Maybe it’s because I’m scared of dying.”
Gary added: “I do just get on with it and do it because I have to, really, but I don’t like it and it kind of ruins the whole day because I’m working myself up so much about getting on a plane.”
Yeah, we think this may have reignited the fear. Poor Gaz.
