Robbie Williams is reuniting for an incredible one-off concert with his old Take That bandmates from their homes in lockdown.

The Take That reunion will be streamed online for fans to watch from the comfort of their homes during lockdown.

The six-song set list will see Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Robbie Williams and Howard Donald reuniting for the first time in two years.

The last time the four were together was on The X Factor in 2018, and Robbie has only sung sporadically with the band since he quit Take That after a feud in 1995.

“This is a world first for us,” Take That said in a statement. “Reuniting with our old friend online for a one-off performance!

“It’s always great getting back together with Robbie and we are really excited to be part of this unique show that everyone can enjoy from home.

Robbie Williams said he was “really looking forward” to performing alongside his former bandmates again, adding: “It’s always a pleasure.

Take That's Jason Orange has become a recluse, says Howard Donald

"There have been no fallings out, only a decision on my part that I no longer wish to do this. I know how much Mark, Gary and Howard enjoy writing and making music, and they know that they have my full support and encouragement to continue on with what is to be another chapter for the band."

There is confirmation on Jason joining the boys for the Meerkat Music concert but, as always, we have our fingers crossed!
