Today host Karl Stefanovic mocks Gary Barlow’s Mancunian accent and claims the Take That singer ‘sounds like Ringo Starr’
Outspoken Today show host Karl Stefanovic hilariously impersonated English musician Gary Barlow’s accent on Friday morning.
The Take That star, 49, was interviewed by entertainment reporter Brooke Boney about his new album, Music Played By Humans, via Zoom from his home in London.
After the segment, the camera cut to a smiling Karl, who did his best impression of Gary’s Mancunian accent, saying: ‘He does sound like Ringo, doesn’t he?’

He was of course referring to Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, whose northern British accent bears a similarity Gary’s, although they are slightly different.
Karl then told a hilarious anecdote about being a Take That super-fan as a youngster, saying: ‘I used to love Take That when I was in year 12.
‘That used to be the place, the nightclub, with Take That on…’
‘What would happen?’ his co-host Allison Langdon asked, to which he responded: ‘Pash city!’

Allison screwed up her nose in horror, saying: ‘You know what! I should have known.’
During his interview, Gary spoke out about how much he misses playing to audiences of thousands – before teasing he would tour Australia when it’s safe to do so.
‘When this is over, and we can safely and with confidence get audiences back into these arenas, get ready,’ he said.

‘They will be the best audiences we have ever played to.’
When asked if he planned to return Down Under, he added: ‘As soon as the doors are open, I’ll be in!’

But Gary is going at it alone for his 2020 record – which is his fifth solo album, one which also features the likes of Michael Buble and Colombian singer-songwriter Sebastián Yatra.
