Take That’s tour plane has reportedly been hit by lightening.

According to The Mirror, the storm occurred while the group were on their way to play their Progress tour in Milan.

A source told the newspaper: "The plane took off fairly normally, though we knew there was bad weather ahead, but midway during the flight the turbulence was really quite frightening,"

"Then suddenly, there was a bright flash, and the plane had obviously been struck by lightning. The pilot had to make an announcement and reassure the passengers that everything was all right."

Gary Barlow has previously joked that he would be overlooked while flying with David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay, if their plane was involved in a crash.

"I could just see how that would be written, 'Football star and top chef in plane crash'. Then in the last paragraph, 'Pop singer Gary Barlow was also on the plane'."
