Former Take That hunk Howard Donald has bad news for those hoping to see a reunion tour from the massively successful boy band - he'll never take to the stage again.

The PRAY star has now swapped his life as an international pop star for a quieter existence as a DJ playing funk and house music. And he is glad to keep his experiences as part of the British pop five-piece in the past.

He says, "It was great as part of a group, but I wouldn't want to do it any more today."

However, Howard hasn't relinquished his ties with the Babe band altogether - he still keeps in touch with former bandmates Gary Barlow, Jason Orange and Mark Owen.

But, although he remains on good terms with other Take That star ROBBIE WILLIAMS, he rarely speaks to him.

Howard adds, "He lives in LA and in London, he's always on the move. It's hard to catch up with him."
