Gary Barlow joins Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park line up.

Gary Barlow has signed up as a last minute replacement for Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park after Lionel Richie pulled out.

The Take That star will step in for the Dancing on the Ceiling hitmaker - who was forced to cancel his scheduled headlining slot at Sunday's (11.09.11) London show due to illness - and the X Factor judge revealed he jumped at the chance when he was approached by DJ Chris Evans.

He said: "It's a pleasure to step in last minute and cover for Mr. Richie. Chris called me and said Lionel had had to pull out because he was ill and they had a hole in the show, so I was more than happy to help out."

Chris added: "What an incredible line-up -thanks to super-sub Gary Barlow, who is now the icing on what was already a special cake! It promises to be a terrific day of entertainment at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park!"

The event will also see performances from Will Young, James Blunt, Imelda May, Jools Holland, The Pierces and Lenny Kravitz.
