Take That are set to reform later this year – and ROBBIE WILLIAMS will be joining them.

The ‘Fab Five’, whose acrimonious split eight years ago sparked depression amongst teenagers, are set for a massive reunion at Christmas time.

Gary Barlow let news of the reconciliation slip at a 19 Management party at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday (April 19).

“It’s not strictly speaking a concert but we’re doing something in time for Christmas, and Robbie has definitely signed to do it,” said Barlow to today’s (April 21) Mirror newspaper in the UK.

Mark Owen, Howard Donald, and Jason Orange will join up with Williams and Barlow, who once vowed never to speak to each other again. The news comes after a spate of programmes on the band – a documentary, ‘The Truth About Take That’, appeared on Channel 4 earlier in the month.

Mark Owen fuelled rumours of a reformation when he joined former bandmate Robbie on stage at his gigs in Knebworth last year.
