Robbie Williams is ready to rejoin Take That.
The 'Angels' singer - who sensationally quit the group 14 years ago - has settled his differences with lead singer Gary Barlow and the rest of the band want him back.
He told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Let's see what happens, but my head's in the right place, so the timing could be right if Gary calls. I think it would be fun. It would be good.
"I'm in regular contact with them, even Gary, so it's looking more likely by the week.
"The lads seem up for it and some people think it's a done deal."
Robbie is keen for the reunion to happen in the near future, saying: "It would make sense for it to happen some time over the next year."
Robbie left Take That in the summer of 1995 and while the band initially carried on as a four-piece, they split the following year.
The group - which also consists of Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald - reunited in 2005 and have gone on to enjoy huge success, including UK number one albums and sold-out tours.
Mark recently spoke of how much he would love to welcome Robbie back to the group.
He said: "It would be brilliant if he came back some day. There's nothing missing without him in a musical sense, but still it would be so great. I think we'd all have Rob back tomorrow if he wanted it and the time felt right."
However, Gary admitted he didn't expect a full Take That reunion to happen on this year's tour.
He said: "Robbie will not be coming on tour with us because he has got his own things to do. But we are not ruling out getting together with him beyond that."
