Robbie Williams says he prefers being in a band

Robbie Williams has revealed he prefers being in a band - because he gets "lonely".

"It's lonely being a solo artist - I kind of always wanted to be in a band ever since I left that one!" he told OK!, referring to his former band Take That.

He hinted there would be a reunion in the future, saying: "Probably, I don't know what it will involve, how much or how little of me there'll be in it, but I'm very fond of the guys - we shall see, I don't know what will happen right now."

Robbie - who's engaged to American actress Ayda Field - claimed problems with his bandmates Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Mark Owen were to blame for the break-up.

"It's your typical boy band problems with the manager, problems in the group, drugs etc. It happens to 90 per cent of boy bands," he said.

"The problems I had with the guys now don't exist. It's all behind us. We seem to have all reached a level of understanding about who we are and who we were back then and we have all forgiven each other for our discrepancies or behaviour or selfishness."

He added: "People spend a lifetime hating each other or not sorting out their differences, but we have."
