Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow reunite for charity

It was the emotional reunion Take That fans had waited 15 years to see.

Last night Robbie Williams finally took to the stage with his ex-bandmate Gary Barlow in a moving performance of their new single, Shame.

The pair famously fell out, causing Robbie, 36, to quit the band, but the feud seemed a distant memory when Gary, 39, stepped out three songs into Robbie's set.

Robbie introduced him saying: "This is one of the most amazing moments of my career, it's been 15 years in the making. "My wife calls him my boyfriend, I call him my captain, to you he's Mr Gary Barlow."

Taking a bow before his old chum, Robbie greeted him with a hug. Robbie opened his set with Let Me Entertain You, and performed Come Undone, Feel and Angels as well as his new duet in front of 60,000 fans - Prince Harry among them - at Twickenham Stadium in London for the concert in aid of Help for Heroes.

The line-up also included Tom Jones, Alexandra Burke and Pixie Lott. Robbie told the BBC: "As soon as we apologised to each other we were on the floor laughing about something else. Personally right now it's a brilliant story for me. I'm in love with everything again. The missus, got me band back, got me life back.
