ROBBIE WILLIAMS snubbed the launch of a new documentary about his former band Take That in London last night (14NOV05) - but his former bandmates forgive him.

The four remaining members of the 1990s pop sensations - Mark Owen, Gary Barlow, Jason Orange and HOWARD DONALD - reunited last night to promote the show, which will be aired in the UK tomorrow night (16NOV05).

Williams - the only bandmember to forge a successful solo career outside Take That - appears in the film, but refused to attend last night's bash.

But Owen insists he doesn't mind: "It would have been great to have had Robbie here tonight, but we were really glad he was involved in the documentary. We understand that he's got a day job and we haven't."
