Take That are reportedly planning to release a documentary to give fans a ‘real insight into the inner workings’ of the group.

The ‘warts and all’ show would follow the remaining members Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald behind the scenes of their blockbuster This Life tour.

The trio are playing 41 dates across the UK, as well as a four-day event in Malta, named The Greatest Weekend, which will also see performances from the likes of Daniel Bedingfield, Sam Ryder and the Sugababes.

This Life is the Back for Good singers’ first tour in four years and they are said to be in talks with TV executives to mark the momentous occasion with a documentary series.

A source told The Sun: ‘It is massive and Gary, Mark and Howard want to share it with as many people as possible.

‘They’re in talks about putting together a film for the tour, which will give fans a real insight into the inner workings of the group.

‘The finer details are all being worked out but it is something they really want to make happen.’

Gary, 53, previously told The One Show host Alex Jones he feared Take That would fail to sell tickets for their upcoming shows.

He said: ‘Each time we come back, we always wonder, is this it? Is this the time when there’s nobody waiting?’

A shocked Alex gasped: ‘Never!’

‘We do, though,’ Gary insisted. ‘I think it’s just human to think like that.’

The former X Factor judge also previously admitted he had not told his wife of over two decades, Dawn Andrews, that the band were going back on the road.

Gary explained on Heart Radio: ‘Before we announced this tour, we need to check with our wives as well. I’ve not told mine yet. We’re going on tour… for 11 months next year.’

After everyone in the studio was reduced to laughter, Gary then said that going on tour with Howard and Mark is just like catching up with old friends.

‘In addition to the music, we’ve always been good mates. So it’s not just like going on tour, it’s like going on tour with your mates,’ he told Zoe Hardman and Jamie Theakston.

Fans can catch Gary, Mark, and Howard in arenas in London, Glasgow, Manchester, and Birmingham, among other UK cities, during the first leg of the tour between April and June 2024.

Take That will also release an album in November named This Life, which they recorded in Nashville.

The band formed in 1990 and originally comprised five members until Robbie Williams left in 1995, and Jason Orange in 2014. has contacted Take That’s reps for comment.
