The Take That singer admitted he doesn’t want flops from the likes of Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor to audition for his series.
Gary – alongside Martin Kemp, Dannii Minogue and Glee’s Amber Riley – is looking to cast five men to play a boyband in his upcoming Take That-themed musical.
The 46-year-old star said: “There are a lot of shows on TV asking for talent, so you’re hoping they’re not going to have done Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor and The Voice.
“This is a show going into theatre – preconceived reactions towards people are bad.
“We’re looking young, fresh talent.
“You don’t want baggage of any kind.”
The touring show, titled The Band, will follow the journey of a male pop group and for feature the Take That.
Gary said: “Back in 1989, we were just a group of normal guys from Manchester who came together to become Take That.
“The secret to our success was that each of us brought something different to the group and that the five of us had real chemistry.”
