Take That star Robbie Williams has said that he once "wanted to crush" Gary Barlow.

According to The Sun, Williams says in the group's upcoming documentary: "My problem has always been with Gary. It always was with Gary."

"I wanted to crush him, I wanted to crush the memory of the band - and I didn't let go."

"You know, even when he was down, I didn't let go. And for that I sincerely apologise."

"But I needed Gary to listen to my truth, to what my experience was, and I needed him to validate it for me."

"And he validated it for me. And it was a real f**king magical moment because you realise when two grown-ups meet up and go, 'Here's my truth' you go, 'Yeah, I'm sorry'."

"There's room for movement and you realise you only hurt so much because you love them so much."
