Take That make their live comeback with Robbie Williams

Original line-up perform for the first time in 15 years on 'The X Factor'

Take That performed live together with Robbie Williams for the first time in 15 years on The X Factor tonight (November 14).

The five-piece appeared on the ITV talent show to play their new single ‘The Flood’, which was kept off the Number One spot in the UK singles chart by Rihanna earlier this evening.

The band, who sold over a million tickets in a day for their forthcoming 2011 stadium tour last month, were backed by a string orchestra throughout their brief performance.

Their new album ‘Progress’ is released tomorrow (November 15).
