Mark Owen "would love" Robbie Williams to rejoin Take That.
The 'Angels' hitmaker quit the group in 1995, a year before they split, and after they reformed in 2005, he went on to rejoin in 2010 to work on their album 'Progress' and a subsequent tour, and though his former bandmate would love to work with him again, he admitted that he, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald are planning their next LP as a three-piece.
He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: “I would love for it to happen in the future but I think this next record will be the three of us.
“We don’t need to talk about whether he will come back — it’s like this intuition thing.
“He might — if he knows we are in the studio — come down and get involved somewhere, maybe in the writing, because that’s just how it happens.”
Fifth member Jason Orange quit the band in 2014 to lead a quiet life away from the spotlight but Mark would also love to welcome him back one day.
He added: “I would love the five of us to do something again one day in the future but we don’t know what will happen.
“When [all five of us reunited] in 2010, for us as a band it was really important to make that record."
“To come together and work together for so many reasons, on so many levels — it was really special."
“If anything happens again it will be because everyone really wants to hang out and have fun together and because our diaries have worked out.”
