"So basically, we had a musical a few years ago called The Band and it toured all around the country, it was a beautiful story of about five fans and in their life was this band," he said.

Barlow said that the movie rights had been acquired and explained how the band reacted to the news.

"And so, this film company's picked it up and it really is it's gonna be a proper film this. We're very excited about it."

As he went into more details about the film, Barlow made a joke about the movie's title, revealing: "It's going to shoot next summer, it's now been retitled Greatest Days, see what they did there? And it's gonna be released in [2022]."

The band has also been using some flattery in the hopes that it will land them a role in the movie, Barlow saying: "We've been sending the writer flowers, presents, chocolates because we're determined to get a cameo in this movie."

Take That's musical movie Greatest Days is currently set for release in 2022.
