Mark pulled out all the stops for the performance and sported a flamboyant yellow floral shirt with bright lemon-coloured trousers and a cream fedora.

Although Mark looked amazing, fans drew comparisons between the star and Tiger King Joe Exotic, TV presenter Keith Lemon and X Factor contestant Wagner. 

Taking to Twitter, many questioned why Mark looked so different and said that he looked more like the big cat keeper rather than his typically clean-cut self.

Elsewhere during the show, in his typical style, Robbie made a late entrance and made reference to his reluctance to join them for their reunion in 2006, as he said: ‘More importantly, I’m here now. Last time, I was 15 years late.’

The gig marked the first time Robbie, who quit the band in 1995, has performed with Take That since The X Factor final in 2018.

After kick-starting with The Greatest Day, Mark took the reins to perform Shine with the aid of a step ladder in his garage.

It was then when Robbie decided to join the trio for performances of their classic hits Back For Good, The Flood, Pray and Never Forget.

In an interval, the group discussed what they have learnt during lockdown. 

Howard said: ‘I’ve never read so many children’s book in the last six weeks. I’ve read more books than in my life.’

Mark added: ‘One thing I have learnt is to save on using kitchen roll, I used to use kitchen roll and toilet roll less because it came quite scarce.’
