Pop star Robbie Williams has said there are plans for him to perform with Take That again some time in the future.

When asked by Jonathan Ross whether he would be working with the band, Williams said: "Yes I hope so."

The 35-year-old, who is a guest on Ross's Friday night chat show this week, said: "We've got together, done bits and bobs. I can't say much."

The singer also performed his new single You Know Me and one of his biggest hits, the 2002 song Feel.

Three new tracks were also recorded for red button viewers.


The star, who has just launched his comeback after a three year hiatus, revealed why he stopped performing live for a while.

"The decision was made for me, I've always been very nervous," he said.

"You don't know what's going on in my head. It's traumatic, really scary. I ended up in rehab again, it was 'what are you doing to yourself?' I thought it's time to break the cycle."

Williams talked about his girlfriend Ayda Field and said he thought he was "going to be a bachelor" until he met her.

"I was introduced to Ayda and things just changed. She's a wonderful person and I'm in love. She's really broody and I'm getting there," he said.

The singer will reportedly be streaming his new album, Reality Killed The Video Star, on the free music website Spotify a few days before its official release on 9 November.

Comedian Jimmy Carr and tennis champion Serena Williams will also appear on the show, which starts at 2235 GMT on BBC One.
