Robbie Williams has revealed that he is writing new songs for Take That with Gary Barlow.

It comes weeks after the 46-year-old reunited with his former bandmates – Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – for an online concert during lockdown.

Before that, Williams last performed with the group during the X Factor series final in 2018, where he was a judge.

Speaking on Mark Wright’s Heart Evening Show, Williams promised to “ride again” with his former partners.

He said: “I’ve been writing some songs with Gary Barlow in the last few weeks too.

“Yeah, so, you know, we will ride again, me and my brothers. I don’t know when that’s going to be but we will ride again.”

Williams last appeared on a Take That studio album in 2010 on the well-received Progress.

Fifth member Jason Orange left the band in 2014, saying: “There have been no fallings out, only a decision on my part that I no longer wish to do this.”

Williams also said that he named his seven-year-old daughter Theodora, although her nickname is Teddy, after being inspired by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

He said: “Listen, who was it, it was Keith Richards has a daughter called Theodora and I remember back in the day, maybe 20 years ago, thinking what a beautiful name.

“So I stole it from Keith Richards so don’t you worry about that.”

Mark Wright is on Heart Monday to Thursdays from 7pm-10pm and Sundays from 12pm-4pm.
