Take That 'wanted to re-name album'

Take That considered re-naming their album after they found out it had almost the same title as Britney Spears's new release, Mark Owen has revealed.

The band's new album is called The Circus and is head-to-head this week with Spears's album - entitled Circus.

Owen, who became father to a baby girl last month, said the title of Spears's album almost "ruined" it for him. He told how the idea for the name came after the band were impressed by the Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.
