Robbie Williams is set to rejoin his Take That bandmates - Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald - for one night only during the final of 'Let It Shine' next weekend
Robbie Williams will rejoin Take That for the final of 'Let It Shine' next weekend.
The 'Candy' hitmaker has agreed to take to the stage with his former bandmates Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald on the popular BBC talent show on February 25 to give the nation a special performance of one of their biggest hits.
The 43-year-old singer will also take on the role of guest judge alongside Gary, Dannii Minogue and Martin Kemp as they decide, along with the public, which band will be crowned the winners of the series following weeks of performing on stage.
Robbie said: "I'm looking forward to being back with Gary, Mark and Howard on 'Let It Shine' and am excited to be a guest judge for the very special final."
Robbie's decision to rejoin his band, which he left in 2014, comes soon after Gary revealed that he would like the 'Could It Be Magic' hitmakers to celebrate 25 years together in 2017.
And Robbie's return won't be permanent as he's got solo ventures to push through with including trying to crack America.
He said recently: "Nobody knows who I am. I can look at them and they can look at me. I get to stare at them and they get to stare at me, but they don't stare because they don't know who I am. I don't like this. I want this to change.
"Back in the 1990s when I went out there to promote my album I was not really dealing with fame very well at all - if I am honest I was not really dealing with much very well. It was when I realised that the more fame I got, the more insane I became. So I just stopped as I needed a place where I was not famous, because that would be the most sane thing to do. So I just lived over there and nobody knows me. Now I have changed my mind and I really regret it."
