Mark Owen is reportedly planning to re-launch a solo career - after enjoying a second wave of success with his reunited boy band Take That.
The group's members - Owen, Jason Orange, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald - disbanded the group in 1996, but reunited in 2006 to huge popularity.
And now Owen is said to be preparing to capitalise on his renewed popularity by releasing his own songs, following the release of the band's third and last record in their current three-album contract.
A source tells The Sun, "Mark has loved the Take That reunion, every second of it. But he still has a huge desire to be on stage with his own band regardless of all the money, huge crowds and success he has been used to with TT (Take That)."
Owen's previous attempts at a solo career have been less than commercially successful - his three albums Green Man, In Your Own Time and How The Mighty Fall failed to top the charts.
