Meghan Markle jokes with Take That in 2018
Take That has been one of the most successful boy bands in UK history, and are best known for their chart topping hits. But the group are also famed for their public fallouts between stars Robbie Williams 49 and Gary Barlow, 52.
The pair famously fell out when Robbie ditched Take That rehearsals to go and party in Glastonbury and later decided to leave the band in 1995.
And after Robbie had left the group behind, he then went on to have a very successful solo career. The duo are now friendly again, but both have previously opened up about their famous feud and how it went down.
After the band’s split, Robbie later explained: “The last few months I was a wreck. The night before we all went out. I drank myself stupid.
“That morning, we rehearsed as normal, but I was drinking an awful lot. So when they spoke to me about my attitude I thought they were saying ‘you should leave’.
“I walked out, left it a couple of seconds and then I jumped in through the door and everybody laughed. And then I walked away. They never thought that would be the last time.”
Robbie continued: “Then I started to cry. I went away an angry young man and I blamed Gary. But the truth is that Take That had two guys who wanted to be the front man.”
With the two having reconciled their differences and even having performed together again on occasion, Gary also discussed why he had “beef” with Robbie.

Speaking on food critic Jay Rayner’s Out to Lunch podcast, Gary said: “Rob was wanting to get to the front. He had a great voice, very natural given talent he had.”
He continued: “My beef with Rob, and we still talk about this, is that I’ll spend six weeks rehearsing a five minute piece to perfect it, every move and note I’ll know what I’m doing. I’ll go out and I’ll get a great response.
“Robbie gets given a song four minutes before he goes out. He learns it and goes out and gets a better response. That’s what annoys me about him.”
The songwriter went on about his former bandmate: “He’s just got a gift. He always calls it the Freddie Star syndrome.
“He loves going out and doing five minutes, the audience goes crazy and he walks off and he’s gone. I prefer a two-hour thing where I can warm people up, that’s got highs and lows.”
