Robbie Williams is reportedly set to reunite with Take That for a special X Factor performance ahead of their 30th anniversary.

“Having Robbie on the panel has been a huge coup, but obviously backstage everyone has been talking about whether or not he’s going to sing at some point.

“It seems a shame to have one of the biggest pop stars on the planet sat there and not hear him, so they’ve been plotting a surprise for the end of the series.

“It’s a while since they got together and nobody is ­completely sure when it was going to happen for the anniversary so it’ll be a massive moment.”

It comes as it was revealed that Take That announced a mammoth tour to celebrate their 30th anniversary - including a gig at Dublin's 3Arena on April 29.
