Take That rule out Robbie Williams reunion

Gary Barlow confirms their fifth member won't be coming back

Take That rule out Robbie Williams reunion
Take That have ruled out any possibility of Robbie Williams rejoining the band.

Despite recent speculation and comments from their former band member that he may return to the four-piece, singer Gary Barlow has now confirmed that a reunion is unlikely.

"People constantly ask if Robbie will rejoin us but nothing has changed," Barlow told Radio 1 presenter Chris Moyles on his Quiz Night TV show. "We're a happy band right now. Robbie won't be joining."

The likelihood of a reunion initially seemed a strong possibility when Williams said on his blog back in December that "he'd loved to be in the band again".

As previously reported on NME.COM, his manager Tim Clark said that he was considering rejoining Take That for their forthcoming London Wembley Stadium shows back in January.

Barlow also previously said that it "was only a matter of time" before a reunion occurs.

Williams walked out on the group in 1995 and the band split a year later.

Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Mark Owen launched a successful comeback in 2006.

Williams is currently back in the studio recording his new solo album, which is due out in the autumn.

Take That are also recording in another studio in the same building, reports BBC News.
