The NEVER FORGET hitmakers are expected to announce their much-anticipated return at a press conference later today, British newspaper the Sun reports, despite solo star Robbie Williams' refusal to take part.
The remaining foursome - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and HOWARD DONALD - will each receive a $2.7 million (GBP1.5 million) for the tour, which will take in major UK stadiums and mark 10 years since their split.
SIMON MORAN, a spokesman for tour organisers SJM Concerts, says, " I think a tour with the boys would be amazing.
"They have a massive fan base. There are so many girls who would love to see them gig again.
"I've no doubt they could sell out venues."
