Take That are to perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool next month, 14 years after they appeared at the first ceremony in Berlin.

The reformed boy band will join Pink, Beyonce, Duffy and The Killers at the city's Echo Arena on 6 November.

"With such fond memories of the event in Berlin, it is a great honour to be asked back," they said in a statement.

Coldplay and Duffy lead the nominees for the awards, with three mentions on the shortlist.

Britney Spears is next in the running, with two nominations.

Take That burst onto the pop scene in the early 1990s, but broke up in 1996, months after the departure of Robbie Williams from the group.

The group reformed 10 years later - without Williams - and performed a sell-out tour last year. They release a new album, The Circus, on 1 December.
