The six-part podcast lifts the lid on Take That's musical journey from the '90s until now, as remembered by the three people at the heart of it all. They’ll share forgotten memories, discuss parts of their lives never heard before and receive surprise video messages from special guests.

The podcast follows the announcement of the band’s ninth studio album, This Life, to be released on November 24, new single 'Windows' and a huge UK and Ireland tour which will see the band play 41 dates across 15 cities from April to June 2024.

The band said: "Who’d have thought after all this time we’d be adding professional podcasters to our resumes?! It’s been a real treat to sit down together and just chat, about some things we’ve talked about before and some things we haven’t. We hope people enjoy listening to us as we reminisce on old times and look ahead to the future of Take That."
