Walk The Line’s Gary Barlow and Dawn French ‘gutted’ as 100 chocolate mousses go missing from set

Walk the Line bosses have reportedly turned Sherlock Holmes after discovering more than 100 chocolate mousses went missing backstage, much to stars Gary Barlow and Dawn French’s annoyance.

The talent show, which starts on Sunday and could see contestants win up to £500,000, is executive produced by Simon Cowell and will be broadcast over six consecutive nights.

The sweet treats were available to the programme’s judges Gary, Dawn, Craig David and Alesha Dixon, as well as presenter Maya Jama.

However, after noticing a large amount had gone missing, producers tried to track down the lost desserts by sending an email around to crew members to urge someone to come forward.

A source told The Sun: ‘Behind the scenes, there was some super sleuthing going on which would rival an Agatha Christie novel.

‘But the offenders have yet to be tracked down.

‘Everyone was gutted, particularly Gary and Dawn who, despite both getting healthier as they’ve got older, still retain a sweet tooth.’

The insider also explained they found it ‘bizzare’ that a hundred of them had been pinched and would appreciate the guilty culprit coming forward to confess, or give them back at the very least.

Before this unusual incident occurred, former X Factor host Gary revealed he was hesitant to resume a judging role until the 62-year-old music mogul asked him to take his place on the upcoming talent show.

‘I felt like I’d really done the talent show thing. But I liked the idea and I thought, “This is going to be different”.’

Gary told the PA news agency that the format of the show made it feel ‘like it was easy to do’.

‘It’s quick. It’s just six episodes, which feels modern now,’ he said, adding that ‘a series with 41 shows nowadays just feels like the past’.

Walk The Line will essentially follow the same foundation that made The X Factor such a phenomenal success, which also appealed to Gary.

Cowell’s Walk The Line, a successor to The X Factor, offers musical variety acts a chance to win a prize pot, but to win the money they must decide if they want to cash out or risk it all to stay in the competition.

Walk The Line will premiere on ITV and ITV Hub at 8pm on December 12.
