Take That's Barlow reveals dark time during split
No one could have predicted the incredible success that the newly reformed Take That have enjoyed, and member Gary Barlow revealed that for the seven years they weren't a band he never sang publicly.
The 'Patience' stars have gone from strength to strength since reuniting, but Barlow explained to The Sun that he never saw it in his future after they announced their split back in '96:
"I never saw myself being back on stage again. Now I can look back and see just how bad things were."
He did, however, work on solo material but it failed to make an impact and he added:
"I realised I had spent seven years where I never sang at all, until I got back with the lads."
"The reason I hadn't thought about going back on stage was that there was no possibility of people wanting me back up there."
"It was horrible the way it ended. Nobody wants any involvement in you whatsoever."
Take That will perform at next week's National Movie Awards, where they will premiere their brand new single 'Love Love', and won Best British Group at the BRITs earlier this year. Watch their dramatic BRITs performance of 'Kidz' here:
