Christmas has come early for Take That fans with Robbie Williams dropping the biggest hint yet that the band will reunite for their 30th anniversary tour.
Robbie joined his old bandmates Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Gary Barlow for a performance on The X Factor over the weekend.
And he’s now confirmed that there’s a lot more reuniting to be had, teasing that departed fifth member Jason Orange could even make a comeback.
Asked whether they’ll be joining forces for Take That’s 30th anniversary reunion tour next year, he told Magic Radio, "As long as we stay healthy, I’m sure there’ll be another moment where we all get together."
"Maybe we can coax Jason back, who knows?" he teased.

They’re hoping Jason Orange will join them
"We shall have to see. But definitely, definitely in the future. We will all ride again."
Robbie is hitting the road with his own solo tour next year while Take That do theirs, but said they’ll be plenty of opportunities for them to join forces.
"Next year when the boys are on tour, I’m on tour too. If we’re in the same place at the same time, there’s an open mic at my gig," he continued, before joking to Mark, "There’s only one, so send Gaz.
"I’m sure there’s an open mic at theirs too," he added.

They had some killer outfits back in the day
Asked if their raunchy nineties outfits will be making an appearance, Mark promised they’d be wearing some ‘crazy costumes’.
“We like to dress up. It’ll be good energy," he said.
And Robbie admitted he’s holding out for the return of one special item of clothing.
"I’m hoping that Howard Donald’s chaps make a comeback. They were really special.”
