'Dudes: Where's my car?"

'Dudes: Where's my car?'

Red-faced Take That star Mark Owen told this morning how he had spent 24 hours thinking his car had been stolen – only to realise he had simply forgotten where he parked it.

The singer – who has announced a string of stadium and arena shows with Robbie Williams back in the group line-up – said he spent yesterday thinking the vehicle had been swiped.

But Owen owned up on the Radio 1 breakfast show this morning to just misplacing it.

“I just left it at some friend’s house. We were speaking to the friend and said we lost it – and they never said it’s on our drive!”

He and the group joined presenter Scott Mills to talk about the tour dates, which were announced at a press conference at London’s Savoy Hotel.

The band said they may add further shows to the 14 UK dates which have so far been announced for next year.

Williams said: “See what happens. If demand is there I’m sure we can wrangle something.”

The last time the five-piece played live together was in 1995.

Progress Live 2011 will feature hits from the band’s early days, Williams’ solo career, and tracks recorded since they reunited.

UK tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday.

A Polish prisoner carefully checks there are no guards around before he enters one of the SS cloakrooms in Auschwitz.
