Singer Gary Barlow has paid a special tribute to Jack Robinson.

The Take That frontman and X Factor judge said he was saddened to hear that the four-year-old from Denmead had passed away.

Jack was a big fan of the singer and one of his wishes as he was treated for a brain tumour was to meet the celebrity, and that came true in February.

Yesterday Gary paid tribute on Twitter to the four-year-old after he passed away peacefully at home.

He said: ‘Let’s all say a prayer tonight for Jack Robinson! Such a brave little man.’

As reported, Gary visited Jack while he was staying in Southampton General Hospital.

Friends, family and well-wishers of the Robinsons contacted Gary through social media to help make Jack’s wish come true.

He spent about 45 minutes with Jack and his family.

At the time he said: ‘For me this is one of the best things you can do – spend time with people. Jack has an inspirational story.

‘I know he loves my music, which was surprising for someone so young.

‘But it’s always the mums that are into it, so maybe that’s what it is.

‘He’s such a great little boy, and I have been looking forward to this visit all week.

‘Jack has some lovely brothers and sisters to look after him.’

Jack also received a video of support from former Doctor Who star Matt Smith.

The actor sent the clip, despite being away at the time filming in America.

‘He always had a cheeky grin’
