Take That and Robbie Williams are reportedly planning something very special together for this weekend’s One Love Manchester benefit concert.
Die hard Take That fans were sent into a frenzy yesterday after the band’s famous former member Robbie Williams was added to the star-studded line-up – and it looks they were right to be excited.
Robbie will perform a solo slot during Sunday’s gig at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, however, talks are ongoing between Robbie and his old bandmates Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen about how they could reunite for the special event.
A show source told The Sun, “Robbie has signed up to perform and, of course, the first thing the organisers suggested was getting him together with Take That, who are already on the bill.

“They are all great mates and love the chance to get together, so everyone agrees it would be a lovely thing to do for such an incredible cause.
“Being local lads it’s obviously something they’re all very passionate about supporting. They have gone to great lengths to make sure they can be there — even though it will mean Take That racing straight from the stage to their own gig later that night in Birmingham. Talks are very much ongoing and if they can make the timings work then it would be a very special reunion indeed.”
Earlier this week, it was rumoured that Oasis would reunite for the benefit concert, but unfortunately, The Sun has confirmed that the Gallagher brothers are definitely not reuniting, as Liam is already booked to perform in Germany on Sunday.
The concert will see Little Mix, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Niall Horan, Pharrell Williams and more perform alongside Ariana Grande.
The pop star will reportedly return to the city today, for the first time since a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured over 100 after her gig at the Manchester Arena on May 22.
The One Love Manchester gig will raise money for the victims of the attack, and in another touching tribute, Ariana will be joined on stage by 24 pupils from Parrs Wood High School’s Harmony Choir — some of who were at the concert and saw the attack.
