Gareth MaloneWe love Gareth Malone for bringing communities together and inspiring people to try something new, but it seems he’s won over  fans for his geeky good looks too.

‘It’s something I’m adjusting to,’ he says. ‘I’ve never seen myself as a sex symbol, even in my wilder moments!’

Gareth, 37, is married to teacher Becky, and they have a daughter, Esther, two. He says, ‘Esther’s made me appreciate life more. I sing to her but it’s too early to say if she’ll be a talented singer.’

The final episode of The Choir: Sing While You Work is on BBC 2 tonight at 9pm.
