Defunct British boy band Take That have been offered a staggering $1.8 million (GBP1 million) each if they agree to a one-off tour - whether Robbie Williams joins them or not.

Williams has been reluctant to reunite with the group which first rocketed him to fame, but his former bandmates are unconcerned by his elusive behaviour.

Singer GARY BARLOW says, "We've been offered a million pounds each to go back on the road one last time.

"Robbie has been included in the offer but I don't know what he thinks. But we would do it without him."
