Gary Barlow hates flying with other celebrities because he wants to be the most famous person on board if the plane crashes.
The Take That star was travelling from Los Angeles to London recently when he realised top chef Gordon Ramsay and soccer star David Beckham were sitting alongside him, prompting him to realise his demise would not make the front pages of newspapers if the aircraft went down.
He joked to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I could just see how that would be written, 'football star and top chef in plane crash.' Then in the last paragraph, 'pop singer Gary Barlow was also on the plane.' "
Gary was in the US with the rest of the band - Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange - to put the finishing touches to their new album.
After they had finished working on the record, the boys decided to take some time off and embarked on a road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
Gary said: "We couldn't even figure out how to fill the car up. It's really rare for just the four of us to be on our own. It took us six hours to get up there but it was such a laugh.
"I love Vegas. We went to see the Cirque du Soleil show to get some inspiration for our tour. It was amazing, but I just kept thinking, 'That looks expensive.' "
While they were in America the band paid a visit to ex-member Robbie Williams, who now lives in Los Angeles.
Recent reports have suggested Robbie has become increasingly reclusive and is obsessed with aliens, but Jason insists they are wide of the mark.
He told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Robbie's looking really well at the moment. We went out for dinner and he was telling us he's been chilling out and writing a lot, but nothing with us.
"I don't know if it's all about UFOs but he'll be bringing something out soon."
Take That's hotly-anticipated new single 'Greatest Day' is out on November 24.
