"We've always been very proud of our live shows and are very excited to be touring again next year," the group said in a statement. "Playing live is something we love the most about what we do and we're looking forward to putting on the most amazing show we can.

"It will have been four years since our last tour so we're really keen to get back out on the road to play some of our biggest songs from the last twenty years alongside our new ones. We hope to see you there!"

News of the tour is not just exciting for Take That's ardent followers, singer Ella Henderson is set the join the band as their special guest.
