Details about Let It Shine's The Band musical including dates, venues, tickets and cast have been confirmed.

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 earlier this year, it was boy band Five To Five who won Let It Shine in the final show.

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

Gary told the group after the final result back in the Spring: "A couple of years ago this started and I wanted a great band, what we have now is an incredible band.

"Well done guys. We start work tomorrow morning. You will be on stage with this musical in September in Manchester."

The Band cast

The boys will play the role of the band members in new musical The Band 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.

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

The show will tour the country from September 2017 and finish its opening twelve month run in July 2018, with dates across England, Wales and Scotland.

Take That's The Band tickets are on sale now from the Band Musical's website here with over £2 million worth of ticket sales recorded already.

As for exactly what we can expect from the stage show - other than Take That's songs of course! - Let It Shine judge Dannii teased: "I know everything about the show - but I can’t say anything!

"It’s so exciting and will be totally unexpected. I love what the whole show is going to be about. Having it explained to me fully, I was moved from tears to laughter just sitting there while he was talking to me about it.

"So once they get all the right performers in that show and get it up and running, it’s going to be incredible."
