Massive noughties boyband reunite for first music in five years for new movie | The Sun
TAKE That are back with their first new music in five years.
The Sun can reveal Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald have teamed up with Britain's Got Talent hopeful turned hit-maker Calum Scott for a reworking of their hit Greatest Day.
The song hit No1 in the UK charts when it was released in 2008 from their fifth album The Circus.
The anthemic but stripped back single has been turned into a dancefloor banger by German DJ Robin Schulz which will drop on May 5.
Robin's latest hit Miss You – released last October – gave him his second UK Top 3 hit, peaking at No3.
Chatting about the track, Calum said: "I was really nervous about jumping on a song that was already such a smash and recording on my vocal in there but it was also such an honour.

"Gary and I hit the studio together for a day working on a new section and doing new vocals and then we went it to the boys [Mark and Howard] to rerecord their parts.
"It was weird for us to be in the studio together as when Gary was a judge on The X Factor I applied but I didn't even get to the TV audition stage.
"We are both Northern so we just had a lot to talk about and gabbing off like we were at a bus stop.
"We said after this track we want to get in the studio together and write original music will be amazing. I'm in the middle of working on my third album so hopefully we can do something for that.

"I'm excited to be able to work with him. Even being linked to a band like Take That is wild."
The song will feature in Take That's musical film Greatest Days – which is released June 16.
"I think its a cool ideal of being not just about Take That.
"It's about the fans who love them and Take Take soundtrack the friends lives rather than a biopic. Really that is what we do as musicians. We write music and we put it out there. There is a Harry Potter magic in that that's undeniable."
Gary, Mark and Howard, all serve as Executive Producers for the film – the trio set to perform live at the film' London premiere in June.
Take That added of their new track: "Greatest Day is a special song for us – it was one of our biggest singles, and our 11th No.1.
"It’s been fantastic being in the studio working on the new version of the track with Calum and Robin, both such talented artists.
"With the movie Greatest Days coming out this summer we wanted to do something special with the title track and we were really excited that Calum and Robin agreed to be involved.
"They have been brilliant! We’re really excited for everyone to hear it."
It' set to be a bumper summer for Take That fans with the boys headlining a special British Summer Time gig in July.
Leigh-Anne is serene in green
LESS is more for Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
The Little Mix beauty made her fans green with envy as she looked super cool in this bright oversized blazer.
Seemingly wearing nothing underneath, Leigh-Anne was partying at the launch of a collaboration between Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola in London.
Also there were Roman Kemp and Ella Eyre.
I told last week how the Shout Out To My Ex singer is on the cusp of launching her solo career, a year after Little Mix went on their hiatus.
The singer jetted to Turkey this month to film her debut music video, featuring impressive choreography and stunning shots across the city of Istanbul.
Leigh-Anne looks set to beat her bandmates Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall to be the first to release music.
The girls have a pact not to put out their tunes at the same time to avoid the chance of a chart battle.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they still end up going head to head.
'Daya back for Dune
ZENDAYA was Dune her best to impress in this backless top.
The actress was joined by her co-star from the sci-fi epic Timothee Chalamet, who wore a leather outfit, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
They were there to tease the release of Dune: Part Two, which will be out in November, and were joined by the director DenisVilleneuve.
Zendaya will be back at the convention tonight to be presented with the Star of the Year Award.
Away from acting she has been busy too, having made a surprise appearance at Coachella music festival in California at the weekend.
She joined Labrinth on stage to perform tracks I’m Tired and All Of Us, both of which were written for the score of US series Euphoria, which she also stars in.
WITH nine days to go to the Coronation, King Charles III has already claimed one crown.
The royal has leapfrogged some of the most iconic names in history to become the most in-demand cutout in the country.
Argos has seen demand for life-size cardboard figures of the new monarch skyrocket ahead of the big day.
Charles is now more popular than Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and, er, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.
Even Disney legends Buzz Lightyear and Elsa from Frozen aren’t shifting as fast as King Chaz.
Not bad for a royal that Twitter predicted would signal the end of the monarchy.
Why is it always Noel?
HE is a Manchester City superfan but Noel Gallagher was left red faced after an interview with one of his heroes, the club’s Italian former striker Mario Balotelli.
Noel recalled interviewing him for TV’s Football Focus and asking about the player’s “Why always me?” shirt, which he wore under his kit and showed off after scoring in City’s 6-1 win over rivals Man Utd in 2011.
Noel said: “I asked where it was and he said, ‘Oh I don’t know, it’s in a holdall somewhere in my flat in Milan’.
“And I said jokingly, ‘Can I have it?’ and he said ‘Yeah, no problem’.”
A few weeks later a package arrived from Man City, but much to Noel’s horror, it later turned out to be a copy.
He told his pal, Match Of The Day pundit Ian Wright, on his Wrighty’s House Live podcast: “I’ve Googled the shirt and it’s not the actual one.
“I’ve called the kit man, who I know, and said, ‘Is this the real shirt?’ and he said, ‘No, he was so embarrassed that he offered it to you that I’ve just made one up for you’. I’ve still got it framed at home though.”
CAT BURNS has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Halsey and Alev split
HALSEY has split from her boyfriend Alev Aydin after three years.
The Without Me singer made the break up public by filing paperwork in the US for full custody of their son Ender, with “reasonable visitation” for her producer ex.
Sources close to the pop star have insisted their separation is “totally amicable”.
Halsey, who dated Yungblud for a year until September 2019, met Alev when he started writing a film about her life, although it was eventually shelved.
In 2021, she said: “Alev and I have been really good friends for four years.
“And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, ‘Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with’.
“A lot of people had opinions about that.”
KIM KARDASHIAN reckons she would be happy to give up her reality star life to become a “full time” lawyer.
She has been training in the profession since 2019 and fighting for criminal justice reform, in memory of her late father Robert, who was a high-profile attorney.

“I’ve known Elliot since he was nine years old. So I know the groom really well. There’s a thing down South we always say, ‘Who’s your people?’
“Well, I know his people, so it is a real wonder to see them in love and just as happy as I’ve ever seen my little girl and Elliot. It was a moment where, yes, I was letting her go, but I was also gaining a family”
