Howard Donald has admitted that he thinks all Take That songs are “s***”.
The boy band star shared his surprising opinion during a chat on the Events That Made Me podcast.
The 52-year-old was asked to name his favourite of his band’s tracks, and replied: “I don’t like any of them, they are all s***.”
Donald said electronic music was more to his taste, but did say his own band really knew how to “deliver a performance”.
He said: "We have always said we want people to walk out of the stadiums or the arenas and say, ‘Wow, what did I just see? That one betters the last one,’ or ‘Maybe doesn’t better the last one but it was an amazing show - I got my £80 worth'.”
"Production wise, you could spend anywhere between £10 million to £15 million producing a show like that,” he went on.

"Then obviously you have got to do enough shows to get your money back, because otherwise you would be doing it for free.
"And we are a business at the end of the day.”
Take That – comprised of Donald, Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen and Jason Orange – got together in Manchester in 1990.
Their hits include Back For Good, Relight My Fire, Shine and Rule The World.
The group’s current line-up consists of Barlow, Donald and Owen after the departure of both Williams and Orange.
