Robbie not rejoining Take That, says Barlow

Robbie Williams will not be rejoining Take That, Gary Barlow has said.

At the end of last month, a national UK newspaper quoted Williams as saying a reunion was “looking more likely by the week”.

But speaking during the recording of Chris Moyles’ Quiz Night, Barlow said: “People constantly ask if Robbie will rejoin us, but nothing has changed.

“We’re a happy band right now. Robbie won’t be joining.”

Williams has himself denied ever talking to the newspaper about a reunion.

He wrote on his blog: “The boys have their thing going on and so do I...”

The 35-year-old walked out on the group in 1995 and the band split a year later.

Barlow and band members Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Mark Owen launched a successful comeback in 2006 after the release of 'Patience', which went to number one.
