Robbie Williams wants Take That tour

Robbie Williams would "love" to do a Take That reunion tour.

The 'Let Me Entertain You' hitmaker insists he would love to join his former bandmates - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - if they were to tour to mark the band's 25th anniversary but he just doesn't have the time this year.

He said: "My head is, I'd love to do something with the boys but I don't know if it's going to be next year because you know, I want this album to have legs and I'm going to go on tour.

"As you can imagine, diary goes: album promo until January, February, March, and then I go on tour for a year which takes me through next year, next Christmas, which would be when the boys would be releasing an album I suppose. I can't do it. I can't do it next year. I want to - I want to be able to do both, but you can't."

However, Robbie hasn't ruled out a reunion in the future and would be keen to join the group for their 30th anniversary.

He quipped: "I'm not going to be able to do the supposed 25th anniversary. But you know, pencil me in for the 30th."

And the 42-year-old singer says he has changed what sort of music he writes now for the sake of his children, Theodora, four, and Charlton, 23 months, who he has with his wife Ayda Field.

Speaking to Toby Anstis on Heart, he said: "Well, I would say about five albums ago I thought it was my right to go off and experiment and be interesting. And forget about writing pop hits. Now, I'm 42, I'm a working father - I've got two children, I've got a wife ... I just want to make mega pop hits and see if I can still do it! We shall see how it goes; it seems to be going okay."

Tune in to Toby Anstis on Heart, weekdays from 9am - 1pm, Saturday 10am - 1pm.
