The show - which features music from Take That - tells the story of a group of women who all loved the same band and were best friends as teenagers, who then reunite 25 years later to see the group perform.

The film is set to star Aisling Bea, Jayde Adams, Alice Lowe, Amaka Okafor and Marc Wootton.

The boy band will feature Aaron Bryan, Dalvin Cory, Joshua Jung, Mark Samaras and Mervin Noronha.

It's thought the band's story will be inspired by Take That, whose music is expected to feature.

“We’re really looking forward to working with such a talented and creative team on the film and we’re absolutely delighted to have such a brilliant cast on board.”

Take That got together in 1990 and, along with past members Robbie Williams and Jason Orange, shot to fame worldwide with songs such as 'Could It Be Magic', 'Relight My Fire' and 'Back For Good'.
