Robbie Williams insists he is still a member of Take That
The `Candy` hitmaker rejoined the group - which he quit in 1995 - for an album and tour in 2012 and despite subsequently releasing a new solo album, `Take The Crown`, and announcing a European tour, he says it doesn`t mean he has left the band.
However, Robbie admits he is unsure when he will work with Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald again.
He said: "Am I rejoining Takethat? I haven`t officially left. This is all written now, what happens with me and the boys, it`s up to us to write what configuration, what happens, how we sing it, where we go if we do go, if we don`t go, and that is still up in the air. Very, very much.
"What I do know, God willing if we all remain healthy, then I will definitely be a part of TakeThat at some point because I love being in the band, I love the boys and I love the creative process with them."
Robbie, 38, credits the band and his baby daughter, Theodora `Teddy` Rose, with giving him the confidence to return to touring as a solo artist again.
Speaking at a press conference at London`s Soho Hotel to announce his 2013 tour, he said: "It`s joyful being around them and that tour last summer was just absolutely incredible, it kick-started my professional career, not for other people, but for my sake - got my confidence back.
"Being with the boys gave me space to find myself again, I`m back, I want to go on tour and I want to smash it.
"I`m sure there are many factors why I`m back and I`ve got the energy, TakeThat being one and my baby being the other."
Tickets for Robbie`s tour go on sale on Friday (30.11.12).
