Take That star supports former bandmate

Take That star Mark Owen says he’ll jet out to America to support Robbie Williams if his former bandmate wants him too.

The singer, 35, went through a period of not speaking to Robbie, 33, following his decision to leave the band at the height of their fame in the 1990s.

But they’ve since buried the hatchet and Mark is desperate to help his friend as he battles his addiction to prescription drugs in rehab.

‘When I read about him checking into rehab I felt sad – I just want him to be happy again,’ he says.

‘I’ll do anything I can to help him. If he wants me to see him I’ll be straight on that plane.

‘Me and Rob went through a period when we didn’t speak, but then he got in touch. Rob was always my mate. I’m so worried about him.’
