Take That's The Band Musical has taken a record breaking £10 million in ticket sales already.

The touring musical will launch in September and tickets went on sale yesterday back in April.

Within just hours, 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.

Now, still three months ahead of the opening night, it's been reported that the show has broken the £10 million barrier in ticket sales.

The musical will star the winners of recent BBC One series Let It Shine.

Fronted by Gary Barlow, Let It Shine 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.

Chatting on ITV's Lorraine recently, they revealed that they had been in intense rehearsals ever 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.

Remaining tickets are on sale now from The Band Musical's website here.
