Earlier this year, new BBC One show Let It Shine fronted by Gary Barlow had been on the hunt for five guys to place the lead roles in the new stage show.

After seven weeks of singing, it was boy band Five To Five who won Let It Shine in the final back in February.

The group - made up of Curtis T Johns, AJ Bentley, Yazdan Qafouri, Sario Solomon and Nick Carsberg - topped the public vote in the live final.

They've since been hard at work in rehearsals for Take That's The Band musical, which is going on tour this year.

The boys will play the role of the band members in the stage show, which is based on the songs of Take That - but is not about the band itself.

In fact, it's actually about five girls, who are fans of the group with their roles cast away from TV screens.

The additional cast includes Rachel Lumberg, Faye Christall, Alison Fitzjohn, Emily Joyce, Jayne McKenna, and Rachelle Diedericks.

"We are doing something that has never been done," Gary said previously. "Our musical has three leads.

"One is The Band, the second leads are the young girls, and the third leads are the older girls. Our guys The Band are never off the stage."

He added: "I think we have an unbelievable band for this show. If we had gone round the country looking, I don’t think we would have got a better group.

The show launched in September 2017 in Manchester and will finish its opening twelve month tour of the UK in July 2018, with dates across England, Wales and Scotland.

When tickets first went on sale in April, many dates had sold out with the show tallying £2 million in box office takings in less than 24 hours, a record for a touring theatre production.

And three months ahead of the opening night, it was reported that the show had already broken the £10 million barrier in ticket sales.
