It has been confirmed last night that Jason Orange of the multi award winning pop group Take That has quit the band. The 44-year-old has strongly insisted there have been “no fallings out” after he told bandmates Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald last week that he did not want to commit to recording and promoting a new album.
Orange released a statement last night, in which he said: “I have spent some of the best years of my life with Take That and I’d like to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey, including my band mates, who I feel are like brothers to me. “Most especially my gratitude goes to all of the good and kind, beautiful and ever-loyal fans of the band, without whom none of this could have been possible. Thank you.’
The hugely popular boyband of the 90s, reformed back in 2005 after a 9 year hiatus and are currently working on their new album and are expected to embark on another world tour.
