Jason Orange could rejoin Take That at any time.

The 46-year-old star quit the group in 2014 and his former bandmates, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald, hope that he will return if they leave him alone to make up his own mind.

Speaking about new musical 'The Band', which all five past and present members of Take That, including Robbie Williams, will serve as executive producers for, Howard told The Sun: ''Jason knows he could turn up today and come back.

''So, he could wake up one morning and say, 'Do you know that I'm going to go to the opening night', or 'I'm going to join Take That today'.

''It's the only way he would come back in, if he's not asked. Once he starts getting asked he says 'no'.

''[Robbie and Jason] were called, they went through the scripts. And Jason was in the band when we first talked about doing the musical so the idea has been growing with him.

''He's not involved quite as much as us but if he doesn't like it he'll let us know.''

Gary previously revealed he hopes all five members of Take That will reunite to mark their 30th anniversary in 2022.

He said: ''We are going to hopefully maybe get Robbie on board and get Jason on board. It might be the 30th anniversary that we end up celebrating.

''We're at the point in our careers where we feel more excited than we've ever been.

''I do picture doing more solo stuff in the future. It's been a few years since I've done that.

''I don't think there's ever going to be an announcement that says, 'Take That is finished', I really don't.

''I just think it may be different. It may be four. It may be three, it may be five. I think it's always going to be changing, that bit.''
