Take That fans will be excited to hear that their first single as a trio is reportedly coming within a matter of weeks.

It was announced last month that Jason Orange had made the shock decision to leave the band, having questioned his future with Take That since the end of their Progress tour.

The remaining members Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald confirmed that they intend to carry on as a three-piece, with a source now claiming the group have been hard at work in the studio since Jason’s departure.

An insider told The Sun: “The reaction from their fans to Jason leaving has made them realise that Take That must go on.

"The message was loud and clear - they want new music now, rather than waiting for years in the hope Jason would change his mind.”

Speaking about the forthcoming Take That single, the source added: “It’s a really upbeat number and more dance-orientated.

“The rough version sounds brilliant and there’s confidence it will be a big hit.

“It’s been a brilliant creative process for them, despite everything that’s going on with Jason leaving.”

The newspaper have also said that the music video for the new song, their first single in three years, will be filmed in the next few days.

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that Robbie Williams has no plans to return to Take That, having briefly reunited with his former bandmates in 2010 for the album, ‘Progress’, and its accompanying stadium tour.

He’s since had two number one albums in the UK, ‘Take the Crown’ and ‘Swings Both Ways’.
