Take That are the latest stars to appear alongside James Corden in a special edition of Carpool Karaoke for Red Nose Day. In a newly-released picture, the British boyband - consisting of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen - can be seen posing with the Late Late Show host after taking part in the highly-anticipated segment, which will air on the BBC on Friday 24 March. Speaking about the filming experience in Los Angeles, Howard told Radio Times: "You don't realise how much work goes into it. As soon as you get in the car you've got 30, 40 cameras pointing at you from different angles. You have to be sitting in a certain position. There’s a crew of about 25 people. You're in convoy, and you're driving around LA for almost three hours."

Bandmate Gary added: "He doesn't drive fast. The trouble with LA is, there's too many cars. So there's a circuit they do where the roads are quite clear, so you keeping moving." Meanwhile, chat show host James has revealed that he would love to bring Carpool Karaoke to the UK after it was announced that Carpool Karaoke will feature as a standalone spin-off on Apple Music. "It's taken us all by surprise, the success, especially of that particular segment. But we do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK," he told Radio Times. James, 38, added: "We're talking about it now, really. We don’t know if we’ll be able to get it together but it’s certainly something I'd love to do, for sure."

Although Take That are yet to break the American market, the group are one of the UK's most successful acts with an enviable career spanning three decades. The band, which originally also included Robbie Williams and Jason Orange, have achieved seven UK Number One albums, 12 Number One singles and sold over 45 million records. Their last album III, the first from the newly created three-piece, went straight to No.1 upon its release in 2014, their seventh No.1 album, with the first single from the album These Days also hitting the top spot.
