Former Take That bandmates Robbie Williams and Mark Owen have secretly rekindled their friendship - and are celebrating by recording a duet.

The pair were close pals during their time in the mega-successful 90s boyband, but drifted apart after Robbie quit the group and went on to triumph as a solo artist.

But with Owen finally landing a recording contract and Williams currently on tour in Britain, the pair have taken the opportunity to catch up on lost time - and are sensationally plotting a reunion on disc.

BABE singer Owen will start his collaboration with the ANGELS hunk at the pop megastar's concerts in Knebworth, Hertfordshire, England - by performing with him on stage.

Mark says, "I've seen all Rob's shows and I was trying to blag for Knebworth. He said, 'If you come, you've got to come up and do some singing.' I was like, 'Yeah. No worries.'"
