Williams' Take That tour
13:30 22 August 2006
Robbie Williams has invited Take That to join him on tour.
The 'Let Me Entertain You' singer says he no longer feels bitter towards ex-band mates - Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Jason Orange - and wants them to join him on his 'Close Encounters' world tour.
Robbie also revealed that work commitments stopped him from performing with them during their comeback tour.
He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "My absolute truth is this: I love Take That, I love that I was in Take That and I love their music.
"The fans would have loved it if I joined the boys on tour and, to be honest with you, had I not had a tour and an album coming out I'd have maybe done the whole tour.
"I'm inviting Take That to come and do my tour. Do they all want to come and do Milton Keynes with me? If so they are more than welcome."
Robbie also revealed he has a crush on Madonna and has even a penned a tribute to the sexy singer entitled 'She's Madonna', which features on his latest album, tentatively titled 'Rudebox'.
He said: "Madonna is the ultimate. Guy Ritchie is a lucky man.
"The song is an analogy. It could have been about Kylie but I do happen to fancy Madonna. I'm in awe of her drive."
