Williams Will Never Rejoin Take That

Pop star ROBBIE WILLIAMS has vowed never to rejoin his old TAKE THAT bandmates - and is determined to outstrip them in the charts.
The Angels star has hired a personal trainer as part of an attempt to rekindle his ailing solo career, according to British tabloid News Of The World.
And, contrary to speculation, Williams has said his future plans do not involve his former colleagues, who are currently enjoying a successful comeback.
Williams tells a source, "I've got plans which involve me and nobody else. I'm going to beat them in the charts; I'll sell more records than anybody else."
His comments will upset his old bandmates, who have hinted at a possible reunion with the singer in 2009.
At the end of 2008, Williams went so far as to reveal he and his former bandmates had held discussions about the singer rejoining the boy band.
In a heartfelt post on his website, Williams wrote, "We got together a lot over the summer. It was amazing. We've all matured a lot since we parted. I'm very pleased to say the differences we've had have just melted away.
After they left I felt like a ton of bricks had been removed from my shoulders. We'd put right what an awful lot of other broken bands fail to do... The thing that struck me the most was how much fun they're having. It's more rewarding when you're a gang. Ever since I left Take That I've wanted to be in a band."
Williams even confessed to having the Take That symbol tattooed on his skin.
And Take That star Mark Owen revealed he felt sure there would be a surprise reunion in 2009: "With Rob, it would be an unannounced thing. I've a feeling that halfway through the show we'd get a message to say that he wanted to come up and sing a song. I doubt it'd ever be a prepared, organised thing. If he does turn up it'll be a nice surprise."

Interesting break news.Provocation or speculation?! And whose?This will be the way the both sides agree with.This must be a decision by their own wishesand their reasons on that particular subject.This is for Robbie:Don't put such a high pressure on yourself in termsof the record sales or anything else.You're beingsuccessful in the music industry, you have yourown style, you have your own fans and you'realways getting new ones along the way...Don't be nor act as someone whose only goalwould be just to be better than his ex-collaborators.Just follow you own ideas, in a way how's life shapingyour feelings about it and you transform them intolyrics and music. That's YOU.You're grown up, intelligent and reasonable and I amconvinced that you can surpass "the pain" and leaveit all behind - the fact that you weren't truly acceptedand appreciated by the other members of Take That,while you were there and a part of it.And the idea for you to be sometimes a specialguest on their tour - will mean a greater advertisingfor them and you will have the satisfaction in a wayyou weren't able to feel while a part of the band.
