Take That 'ghost laid to rest'
Robbie Williams says he's thrilled with the success of the boys Progress tour.
Robbie left the chart-toppers back in 1995 to focus on a solo career but had fans head over heels when it was announced he would return for their latest tour.
He's now back in Los Angeles relaxing after the tour but said the time they spent together meant they were like "brothers bound together".
He wrote on his blog: "We did exactly what we set out to achieve ... record selling, critically acclaimed album, check ... record busting tour?, check ... 1.8 million happy friendlies?, check ... the ghost of christmas past finally laid to rest, check!"
The tour wasn't without it's dramas, with Howard getting stuck on a giant prop , the boys having to cancel a gig in Copenhagen when Robbie got struck by a bout of food poisoning and he even got caught with his trousers down .
Robbie blamed a 'Danish black lobster with lobster salad and saffron aioli' for his illness.
