Robbie Williams likely to rejoin Take That on 25th anniversary tour

Robbie Williams is likely to rejoin Take That for a 25th anniversary album and tour, according to the band.

However, the other departed band member, Jason Orange, who quit the chart-toppers in 2014, is currently ruling himself out of any kind of reunion.

“We’ve been in touch with Jason and we’ve been in touch with Robbie,” said Howard Donald.

Jason is in his place where he is now and he’s not got any ­intention at the moment to be back in the band. Whereas Robbie — we’ve been talking to Robbie about it, and it might be that if we do a 25th anniversary album, that we do some co-writing or some extra tracks on that.”

Donald’s bandmate, Mark Owen, added: “I think it would be nice to do something with him. In our minds at the moment there’s an intention to do some new tracks, a greatest hits and a tour, then we’ll see.”

“I think Jay is happy where he is,” added the 44-year-old. “I don’t think at the moment he has any sort of dreams or wishes to come back and do it, so we’re just carrying on doing our thing.”

Take That released their most recent album ‘III’ in 2014 and reissued it with several new tracks last year.

The Pray hitmakers, currently a three-piece comprising Gary Barlow, Owen and Donald, are set to headline a massive Barclaycard Presents British Summertime Hyde Park show in London on July 9.

Williams, 42, left the group in 95, but rejoined for a short stint in 2010 for the band’s Progress album and tour.

Last week it was announced Barlow will head up a new Saturday night BBC One show leading a talent search for the cast of a Take That musical.

Let it Shine, co-presented by Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc, will search for a band to take part in a stage show featuring the group’s music.
