Viewers of coronation concerts labeled Take That as ‘unrecognizable’ as they spoke in an interview on Sunday night ahead of their performance at the event.
Many took to Twitter to note that the trio — made up of Gary Barlow, 52, Howard Donald, 55, and Mark Owen, 51, — were starting to show their age.
The pop stars were talking to presenter Clara Amfo about their performance later that evening.
As they spoke, one of them took to social media saying, ‘I can’t believe Mark Owen actually looks much older than Gary Barlow and Howard Donald when he’s the youngest! #CoronationConcert.’
Another said, ‘Of the 3, Gary Barlow has certainly aged the best. Mark Owen Omg! #CoronationConcert.’

Her performance will be part of a wider nature-themed portion of the concert, which will also feature a rendition of an 1980s hit by classic soul composer Alexis French and London-based singer-songwriter Zak Abel alongside a resident orchestra, band and choir.
