According to The Sun, the three remaining members of the group will team up with former bandmate Robbie Williams in the coming weeks, though anyone hoping to see the full five-piece back together could be in for disappointment.
An insider told the paper: “Gary wanted to finish off ‘Let It Shine’ with a bang and he thought a Take That reunion to close the show was the perfect way to achieve it. The idea is that it would also set the stage nicely for the musical to follow.
Jason announced he was leaving the group in 2014, and since then, Gary, Mark Owen and Howard Donald have topped the UK albums chart with their most recent offering ‘III’, led by number one single ‘These Days’.
The Sun’s source continued: “[Gary] felt the chances of [Jason] doing it were so non-existent that it wasn’t worth the effort.
Gary currently serves as Head Judge on ‘Let It Shine’, which hopes to find a group of singers to star in a new jukebox musical, based on the hits of ‘Take That’.
However, it hasn’t exactly pulled in the viewers, repeatedly losing out to ITV rival ‘The Voice’ in the ratings battle.
