Robbie Williams will officially rejoin Take That for a year and do an album and tour with them, it has been reported today.

The singer has been busy working on a duet with Gary Barlow called Shame, but far from being a one-off it’s actually the start of loads more collaborations.

The new album is expected by Christmas with the massive stadium tour pencilled in for the summer.

Shame will be released in October this year and it’s thought Robbie will officially announce his return to Take That not long afterwards.
