Take That To Reform Without Williams

Defunct boyband TAKE THAT are reforming for a spectacular one-off concert and a series of TV appearances - but ROBBIE WILLIAMS is refusing to join his former bandmates.

The chart-topping group's remaining four members - GARY BARLOW, MARK OWEN, JASON ORANGE and HOWARD DONALD - are negotiating a deal with their ex manager NIGEL MARTIN SMITH, which will see the singers team up for the first time in six years.

Smith, who is currently in talks with various TV companies and promoters, confirms, "The band's record label BMG came to us with the idea of releasing live footage of their old concerts. It was obvious there's still a lot of interest in the band.

"So we agreed to put out a live DVD - complete with Robbie. It will also coincide with the re-release of the band's digitally remastered back catalogue.

"The reunion is part of the deal. The lads are now deciding what to do but it will definitely include some TV appearances and interviews - and possibly a live special."

However, Williams is adamant he will not be part of the band's resurrection, recently saying, "A Take That reunion? I'm afraid there's more chance of hell freezing over."
