Mark Owen loved appearing on stage with Robbie Williams this summer (03) for the first time since their Take That days - and even managed to keep his nerves in check.

Owen joined Robbie before crowds of 120,000 during the ROCK DJ star's record-breaking Knebworth gigs in Britain this August for an emotional reunion - and dealt with the pressure by trying not to think about it too much.

He says, "It was brilliant, very exciting. It was the end to an amazing weekend for me. I'd played this tiny gig in front of about 20 competition winners on the Friday, then the ASTORIA which holds maybe 2,000 on the Saturday, then Sunday suddenly facing 120,000 on stage with Robbie Williams.

"But I wasn't as nervous as I thought I'd be, probably because I didn't have time to think about it. It ended up being pretty spontaneous which helped as well."
