Take That Hit The Water For The Flood Video
TAKE THAT have filmed their first music video with ROBBIE WILLIAMS for more than 15 years.
The Back For Good bandmates donned old-fashioned rowing uniforms to compete in a mock Oxford and Cambridge boat race in the promo clip for new single The Flood, which will mark the band's full reunion.
The video was filmed at Dorney Lake in Berkshire, where top rowers will compete in the 2012 London Olympics.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Robbie and the boys clearly got on very well. It was just like old times. They were mucking (messing) about and having fun.
"The boys were stuck in a five-seater rowing boat wearing old-fashioned white rowing kits, bearing a custom-designed Take That crest. They were told to paddle like the professionals. I think they found it quite hard. If you haven't done it before, sculling (rowing) can be pretty difficult."
And playful Williams relished his day on set - by hopping in the lake and singing with kids on set: "When they finished filming on the first day Robbie decided he needed to cool off. He jumped straight into the lake and had a little swim. No one else had the guts to join him - it was freezing!
"There were lots of little kids around and at one stage they all started singing (Williams' hit song) Angels and Robbie was pretending to conduct them."
The boy band plans to release an album and go on tour following Williams' return 15 years after he left to pursue a solo career.
