Take That's Gary Barlow

Take That have been undertaking emergency dance lessons.

The 'These Days' singers - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - are reportedly worried about looking like "boring old men" on stage so have been having intensive choreography sessions following the departure of Jason Orange, who was widely regarded as the group's best mover.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The boys know they need to put in extra leg work now that they're a threesome, so Gary's roped in a pro choreographer.

"They've spent hours learning new dance routines.

"Take That tours are always huge productions and they don't want to look like boring old men on stage."

And it seems fans may not have too long to wait to see the trio's new moves.

A fan tweeted to ask: "SURELY the next lot of big news is going to be the tour? (sic)"

Gary replied simply: "Yep."

While the 'Patience' hitmakers are "committed" to their new line-up, it was previously revealed they have left the door open should Jason wish to return in future.

A source said: "If Jason had wanted to come back and rejoin his bandmates, he would have been very welcome - and that was made clear to him.

"They're committed to moving forward as a trio but the door will always be open for Jason."

The prototype boy band have re-lit their own fire and returned to cash in those nostalgia dollars, and have proved far more credible than any of us could have imagined. Now reduced to a three-piece as Jason Orange bows out but Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald soldier on.
