Take That get stuck on robot at Manchester concert

Take that - Howard and Mark on the left were stuck on the hands of a giant robot

Two members of Take That got stuck on a giant robot when it broke down during their show in Manchester.

The robot is part of the impressive stage show on their UK tour - the biggest tour in UK live music history - which is sold out.

Howard and Mark were singing on the hands of the machine 3m in the air - but couldn't get down.

They still managed to perform their songs, even singing lead vocals, before being rescued by a ladder.

The stage production cost about £15m to put together with the robot used in the shows standing 30m (100ft) high when fully erect.
