Robbie Williams has said he will not be taking part in a forthcoming Take That tour and album, although the singer insisted he has not quit the group.
Speaking to The Sun, Williams put the decision down to the demands of his solo career and the fact he is expecting a second child.
“Logistically I can’t do it. I have the [solo] tour and I’m going to be a dad again," he said.
But he stressed he was not calling time on the band, saying:
“It doesn’t mean to say I won’t join in along the way. Whatever happens, I am absolutely going to be in Take That — I love being in Take That.”
