Gary Barlow has denied Take That are planning to split - insisting that he is very much "committed" to the band.
The 41-year-old singer announced he would be embarking on his first solo tour since 1999 recently which cause speculation to mount that this would signal the end for Take That.
However, Gary informed the BBC that the four-piece group have no immediate plans to split and will be recording new material early next year.
"Definitely not...," the star answered when asked on talk of a rumoured split, adding: "We're hitting the studio in the New Year."
"So, I guess in a way it's [the tour] my last bit of freedom actually because once I commit to Take That again, it's an 18-month - two year thing... So I'm sort of celebrating my last few months of freedom."
