Take That's logo has been spotted shone onto the side of St Mary's Stadium in Southampton.

The illumination has led to hope among the band's fans that Southampton could feature in a tour line-up. The trio are set to release a new single on Friday.

They last toured with Greatest Hits Live in 2019 - although Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald played Hyde Park in July this year.

The only Take That-linked event  confirmed in the city so far is the run of the Greatest Days musical at Mayflower Theatre this September 26-30.

The image of the Take That emblem has sparked huge interest among fans.

One fan tweeted: "Omg that means they are coming to Southampton again 🙌🙌🙌 @takethat  I’m so excited x."

Another added: "Cannot wait for this. Eekkkkk."
