Everybody’s talking about… Gary Barlow’s Christmas cracker

Take That were on the Late Late Show last night (along with Hozier and Pat Shortt) and during their segment they got into the festive swing of things by pulling some crackers.

Gary Barlow didn’t seem too impressed with the joke in his though, and refused to read it out.

What do you think it said? Answers on a postcard (or in the comments section) please?
