Former X Factor judge Gary Barlow is to make an appearance in the grand final of rival show Strictly Come Dancing.

He will join his bandmates in Take That for a performance on the show next month as they launch a promotional blitz for their new album III.

The group made their debut as a trio at Global Radio's Make Some Noise Night last week and then gave their first TV appearance of new single These Days on last night's results show for ITV's X Factor.

They have now lined up to add Strictly to their list of appearances with a performance due to be recorded on December 7 and screened on December 20.

Gary was a judge on The X Factor for three years, bowing out after the 2013 contest ended.

Take That are due to release their new album on December 1 and will also be performing a Radio 2 concert and have a slot on BBC One's Graham Norton Show in the coming days.

Last year there were complaints about Gary's over-exposure on the BBC as he launched his solo album, which led to some of the coverage being scaled back.
