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 show.
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.
Gary told the group after the final result: "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."
Chatting on ITV's Lorraine today, they revealed Gary wasn't joking and that they had been in intense rehearsals since the show finished on BBC One.
The group were also keen to deny claims they were just "backing singers" after it was revealed the main plot would actually be about five girls, who are fans of the band.
The guys explained: "We sing the whole score, it’s sang by us. It underscores the whole story.
“We hardly leave the stage, it’s a very physical show, you’ll be seeing a lot of us."
Take That's The Band Musical will tour the country from September 2017 and finish its opening twelve month run in July 2018, with dates across England, Wales and Scotland.
Tickets go on sale TODAY (April 3) at 12PM from the Band Musical's website here.
