Robbie Williams is to perform with Take That next month.
The ‘Bodies’ singer has been invited to play at a special concert the group’s singer Gary Barlow is organising in aid of charity Children in Need and plans to join his former bandmates for a one-off performance.
Robbie - who quit Take That in 1995, shortly before the rest of the group went their separate ways - said: “Yes, something is finally going to happen. Me and Gary have been hanging out a lot lately, talking things over. It’s been absolutely amazing. I’ve always wanted to be in a band ever since we split.”
‘Grace Kelly’ star Mika is one of the other stars performing at the event at London’s Royal Albert Hall – and has promised some surprises of his own.
He told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “It would be great. I’m a real fan of Robbie and I really like his new single ‘Bodies’. I’ll be performing a duet. I can’t say who with yet but there are going to be a lot of surprises.
“Gary has done a fantastic job. It’s going to be an amazing night.”
Meanwhile, Robbie has reportedly been taking his girlfriend alien-hunting.
The singer – who recently moved back to England - has made several late-night trips to Cradle Hill, near Warminster, southern England, with actress Ayda Field to try to spot UFOs.
A source said: “During the summer, Robbie and Ayda went on loads of late-night excursions. Cradle Hill used to be a really famous spot in the 60s and 70s where UFO hunters would gather en masse and scan the skies for signs of alien life. It’s undergone a bit of a revival recently so Robbie has taken Ayda up there to see if they can spot anything. Ayda loves it.”
Robbie, 35, is "obsessed" with extra-terrestrials, and claims to have seen three UFOs during his lifetime.
