COULD It Be Magic? No, it’s really true — the Take That boys were in Rotherham yesterday (Sunday).

Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald took a break after kicking off their Greatest Hits tour in Sheffield to pop over to New York Stadium.

The band was in town to film a new car advert as part of their Suzuki Surprises series in which they surprise some of their most devoted fans.

The 30-second adverts are part of the car brand’s three-year partnership with ITV’s Saturday evening line-up.

A huge Take That banner was set up behind the north stand and a fan bus was stationed in the car park.

The singers were spotted in between scenes heading into their dressing rooms (below).

Crews are still filming in the town centre today, without the band, and are being assisted by traffic police.
