Gary Barlow has said to fans to never forget that Robbie Williams was an original member of the band; sure, they had had a falling out, everything changes, and he promises Williams is now back for good.
"We have a million love songs we're going to release, Sunday to Saturday," Barlow said. "Every guy has a rough patch, but it only takes a minute to make up, and he won't be wasting my time or yours. Nobody else could replace him."
Williams, who has been holding back the tears, admits that he did pray this day would come.
"This reunion will relight my fire," Williams said. "How can it be otherwise? I say to the fans that I know I've broken your heart, but whatever you do to me, I won't be saying 'I'm Out', I can make it, I'll do what you like. All I want is your forgiveness. I thought I found heaven when I split, but once you've tasted love you realise you hate it, being alone."
Williams admitted he missed being in the band, and Barlow believes it will give good feeling back to the fan base.
"You know, we still can't get over you," Barlow said to Williams. "I'm satisfied that I never want to let you go again. You are the one the band needs. If this is love, then you have shown the meaning of love by coming back."
Fans have asked could it be magic having Williams back in the band. Williams had a message for them: "Babe, it put another crack in my heart to, but lady, tonight, or the day after tomorrow, in our first reunion gig, I'm going to be hanging onto your love."
