Among the fans in today's queues were sisters Paula Pettitt and Tracey Ellis, from Bury St Edmunds, and Tracey's daughters Amy and Lottie. They started queuing at about midday and were wearing colourful flowers in keeping with the Wonderland theme. Paula and Tracey have been to almost every Take That tour and were excited to see Wonderland for the first time.

'There's no show like a Take That show, it's like a West End show and gig mixed together,' said Ms Pettitt.
