The X Factor judge will be joining his former band for a special performance ahead of their 30th anniversary celebrations in 2020 to perform some of their classic songs.
It has been reported that when Robbie signed on to join the judging panel of the TV talent show bosses were keen to reunite him with his former bandmates for a performance.
A source said: “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 been a while since the boys have been together as their original five-some with bandmate Jason Orange also leaving the group in 2014, but if the big reunion happens apparently he could be persuaded to get involved too.
The source continued: “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.”
In honour of their upcoming anniversary, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald are embarking on a huge Take That greatest hits tour across the UK playing their most successful songs and some of their biggest hits reimagined.
