Reformed British boy band Take That haven't given up hope on ex-member Robbie Williams joining them on a forthcoming tour.
The PATIENCE hitmakers, who have enjoyed phenomenal success in their native country since reforming early last year (06), haven't performed with Williams since he quit the band in 1995 - and was nowhere to be seen at their concerts last year.
But the band haven't given up on the ANGELS singer just yet.
Singer Mark Owen says, "We hoped he'd come and do one night with us.
"Rob said he'd have done it if he wasn't touring and making a record himself (RUDEBOX). The timing just never worked out. We all still think that maybe one day it'll happen.
"For us anyway, that'd be the icing of the cake."
