| Gary and Mark arriving to the JFK airport in New York on Sunday 09-03-2014
Mark is very pretty. He loves buyiing clothes. He’s a vegetarian and he worries about a litle bunny we saw in the middle of the road. He looks after the rest of the group. “I worry about them , I’m always making sure everyone’s got their bags ant their bits, I think it annoys the others” (“No, he’s considerate and conscientious”- Jason). “It’s also my worst thing, I worry and moan about things and then get the rest of the band worrying. He wishes he was a bit taller “because everyone keeps taking the piss” When he was little he used to spook himself up. “I use to sit in bed with blankets wrapped around me neck in case of vampires and I’d see demons on the patterns on the wallpaper. I was chicken”. He thinks he’s forgotten how to cry. “There are times when I’ve sat on my bed aand I wanted to cry and I couldn’t.” He’s a summer boy. “I love the smell of summer, the feel of flowers about me. It just makes me feel so much better.” He says that in life you should always go your own way and do what you feel is right for you.
Then there’s Robbie, i.e. Trouble! “Sometime I go too far when I’m taking the piss, I don’t know when to stop. Also I’m not very good at taking criticism.” He says his humour, however, is his best asseet. (“He keeps everyone in fists of laughters”- Howard) Robbie looks like a tall Marky Mark and does a very good impersonation of him too. He goes from being unbelieveble soft spoken and cute to having a big booming voice! He’s incredibly friendly, he used to have 30 baseball caps and now he’s got five because he gave them all to fans. He’ll cry over anything. “I’m dead soft, me. I was watching Neighbours once, Joe Mangie’s wife got shot and I cried over that”. He loves Jazz after-shave and says his advice to the world is , “Not to get stressed!” With his first wage from Take That he paid his nan’s gas bill.- Smash Hits
