Take That star Gary Barlow is so driven in his career he never stops to enjoy his group's chart successes

Gary Barlow doesn't enjoy his number one records.

The Take That singer - who has written most of the band's biggest hits, including UK number one singles 'Pray', 'Babe', 'Back For Good', 'Never Forget', 'Greatest Day' and 'Shine' - says he's so driven, he never stops to take a moment to appreciate his success.

He said: "I always try to tell myself if you have a number one or if you have something that people are loving, take that moment and go, 'This is brilliant,' but I never do it.

"It's a bug, you know, and I think it's more in songwriters than in anybody else."

Gary accepts he can be too serious in his pop career, but has relaxed since Take That - who initially split in 1996 - reformed in 2005.

The musician - who is currently a judge on 'The X Factor' - told Radio Times magazine: "I've approached it this time completely differently with a totally relaxed attitude, not taking things too seriously - though I do take a lot of things seriously."
