Pop superstar Robbie Williams is earning his elusive Take That rival GARY BARLOW large sums of money - by covering a track his former friend wrote for the hit 90s boyband.

Robbie has been performing a revamped rendition of Take That chart-topper BACK FOR GOOD on his current ESCAPOLOGY tour, a song written by Barlow for their 1995 longplayer NOBODY ELSE.

Barlow - who has disappeared from the limelight since the band's demise - has reportedly earned a sum of around $80,000 (GBP50,000) so far.
