England's iconic pop group Take That announced their UK and Ireland 2024 tour this morning - much to the delight of their fans!

During their appearance on Zoe Ball's Radio Two Breakfast Show - and the fan-frenzy of the trio's excitement, lead singer Gary Barlow pointed out that there's still one more party left to consult.

"We need to check with our wives as well. I've not told mine yet..." the Let Me Go singer hilariously joked whilst on air.

The 52-year-old and his wife Dawn married at the start of the century, and his time away will surely be an adjustment for the pair who often keep family life away from public eyes. With 29 dates already scheduled for 15 cities, it's set to be a busy year for Gary, Mark and Howard.

But fans are more than ready to snatch the stars away from their partners for a selfish night together.

"We have brilliant fans," Gary said on the show. "They still go crazy, and now they bring the rest of their family with them. Maybe in the 90s they'd come by themselves - now they've got families."

The 11-month tour isn't just a treat for all the Thatters in the country, but This Life On Tour is set to be yet another adventure for close friends, whose trips away are never just about the music.

"We've always been good mates, so it's not just going on tour. It's going on tour with your mates. It's just fantastic," the 52-year-old touchingly said, hinting that friendship only gets stronger with age.

Heart's announcement of the tour on Instagram was greeted with pure ecstatic bliss. One fan commented: "WOW" on repeat, and another said: "They do put on a great show."

Sorry Dawn, it's time for us to have him now!
