Robbie was a member of boyband Take That alongside Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange, from 1990 until 1995, when he quit the group after falling out of favour with the band.
He soon launched a solo career. While his first few singles weren't huge successes, his song 'Angels' became a huge success and propelled him to a greater level of fame.
After Take That reunited without him in 2005, he rejoined the band in 2009 for the Progress album and tour a year later. He has performed with the group on and off ever since, but has yet to announce any plans to rejoin full-time.
