Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams has Take That ultimatum

Subscribe to Robbie Williams alerts


Robbie Williams has until May to commit to Take That.

The 40-year-old singer, who has 19-month-old daughter Theodora with his wife Ayda, has been given a deadline to decide whether he'll return to the band or not.

Bandmate Gary Barlow, 43, said: ''We need to know what we are doing by the end of May.

''The thing is with Robbie is that he is a family man, so whether he will be in the final line-up I'm not sure.''

Gary initially gave Robbie until January to make his final decision, but the band - also consisting of Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Mark Owen - have only just begun work on their new album, so the cut-off date has been extended.

Gary explained: ''We're one month into the writing process, with the new record hopefully at Christmas and a tour next year. We think we have some good material already but no album title just yet.''

However, regardless of Robbie's decision, the 'Face to Face' hitmaker insists the hunk will still write with the band on their new album, and the group will also help out with Robbie's next release.

Speaking on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man' tonight (28.03.14), he explained: ''If he's not back in the band, he'll write on the record and we will work with him on his next record.''

'Alan Carr: Chatty Man' airs at 10pm on Channel 4.
