Speaking about his own cameo appearance, the director told Fathatracks: 'I got there and obviously they briefed everyone but I got there late, so they were like "stand there, put this on."'
'I went into this trench and I had no idea what was going on, and I looked to my right and it's Gary Barlow.
'I think his wife or girlfriend was there as well. You start looking down the line, it was a bit like "I'm a rebel, get me out of here"'.

Speaking about his minor role to Lorraine in March, he announced he was not a Stormtrooper but he was in the film franchise.

'I think the Star Wars people are so strict about what information [is out there]. So me saying that, I've probably just done myself out of a role.'

Gary joins a whole host of stars who played extras in Star Wars Episode VIII with Prince William and Harry reportedly appearing in the film franchise disguised as Stormtroopers.
While it's nigh-on impossible to identify the duo in the new film, thanks to their white helmets and full shiny suits, speculation about their role has reached fever-pitch including reports that their height has blown the secret.
Fans of the franchise may know that Stormtroopers have to be 5ft 11in to play the part of the men in white suits.
However, Prince William is a towering 6ft 2in and Harry is only a fraction less at 6ft1in, which could set them apart from the rest of the group.
