Take That are to join James Corden on 'The Late Late Show' in March for their first US talk show slot in 22 years.

The 'Back For Good' hitmakers - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - last appeared on television across the pond in 1995, when they were on the 'Late Show with David Letterman', but according to a source the British group will join the 38-year-old British comedian on his show to perform a new song from their forthcoming album 'Wonderland'.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''James has a deep-lying love of Take That which has only intensified since they became pals.

''Now he has the power of The Late Late Show behind him, he can put a big US audience in front of them and help push their name.

''He is also genuinely happy to interview them and listen to their music as he's such a mega fan.''

In 2015, frontman Gary, 46, suggested he was on the ''brink'' of success in America after his Broadway show 'Finding Neverland' smashed the box office taking in £6.7 million in advance sales.

The 'Rule The World' hitmaker, who penned the score for the new show, said that while he failed to crack the US at the height of his Take That career, he felt well-placed to do so.

At the time, he admitted: ''I think I'm now on the brink of success in America. It's come to me, I haven't chased it. I haven't been lying in bed, thinking, 'I've got to crack America.'

''I did in the 90s, but I honestly haven't considered it since. It's fallen at my feet.''

Despite his best efforts, Gary acknowledged he never came close to breaking the US market.

He recalled: ''I tried hard when I went solo after Take That split. 'Back For Good' was a hit here and I was signed to RCA Records.

''I did a nine-month radio tour, I gave it a real go. I had two albums but we never got close.''
