As they approach their 30th year together in 2019 (how's that for making you feel old?), it sounds like Take That have some pretty big plans in the works.

The man-band have confirmed that they're releasing a Greatest Hits collection this year, and are planning to take it on a world tour next year. If you've seen Take That live in recent years you'll be well aware that their show and staging is spectacular - so we're guessing that this could be their best one to date. (Croke Park 2019? You read it here first, folks.)

They confirmed the news on The One Show the other day, with Howard Donald saying: "We're recreating some of the songs for the Greatest Hits. We've got three new songs that we're going to put on the Greatest Hits. We want to go to all of the territories that we've never been to before, like South America."

It's not yet clear, however, whether former members Jason Orange and Robbie Williams will be involved, although the remaining trio have previously expressed hope that they would be.

In other Take That news, there's also a film version of the stage musical based on their career, 'The Band', in the works. Gary Barlow told The Sun: "It's definitely going to be made and could start shooting as early as next year.

"We don't know who will be the direc­tor as yet, but we're working on a deal now. It's really exciting but we appreciate there's a few hurdles to overcome first. Brad Pitt is playing me, obviously."
