Take That star Howard Donald says strain of touring has him binging on junk food

Touring can take its toll on a pop star.

Howard Donald has contracted a dangerous condition while singing around the country with Take That: “greedy b******ness”, is its official term.

The 51-year-old, who is performing at London’s O2 this week, admits he has become prone to overindulging on junk food following his exhausting performances.

After gorging on an entire lemon meringue pie, a Snickers and crisps at his hotel on Tuesday, wife Katie has told him to undergo facial acupuncture, pictured, to repair skin damage.

“My wife suggested acupuncture which will help to cure greedy b******ness,” he explains. “Even though I hate needles – let’s hope it works.”

Gary Barlow exposed his body to temperatures of minus 200C in a cryotherapy chamber ahead of shows last year, and he’s also been on strict juice diets.

The boys are performing eight shows in nine days in London – a gruelling stint Howard admitted is “hard”.

At least his skin will be glowing.
