Take That have been crowned the greatest boy band of all time, beating the likes of the Beatles to the crown.

The group, who sold nearly 30 million records before they split in 1996, reformed two years ago to record new material.

They have since gone on to stage huge arena tours in both the UK and abroad.

The Beatles came in second in the poll ahead of the Jackson 5, Westlife and the Monkees.

The survey, conducted by OnePoll, asked 5000 people to vote for their favourite boy band of all time.

A spokesperson for the organisation said Take That's popularity “has to be down to their amazing comeback.”

Other bands who featured in the top-10 included Backstreet Boys and the Osmonds.
