Angels singer Robbie Williams has reportedly quit Take That for the second time to focus on his own solo career.

The 39-year-old singer originally left the boy band in 1995 before reuniting with the group in 2009.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, an insider said: "Robbie feels rejuvenated about his solo career. He feels on top of his game right now and wants to continue his solo success!

The source further explained that Williams is set to rekindle his relationship with former collaborator Guy Chambers, adding:

"Robbie's been back in the studio with Guy Chambers, who co-wrote most of his biggest hits - including Angels.

"Ideally he'd love to do the Take That record and his swing album but that's just not possible - not when he's wanting to take time off to be a dad too."

Robbie's partner Ayda Field gave birth to the couple's first daughter, Theodora Rose, late last year but he is also keen to tour more after he "really loved" his latest experience with his Take the Crown stadium tour.

The insider further pitched in: "Robbie didn't want to commit to too many dates at first as he's struggled with touring in the past.

"But he has really loved it this time around and doesn't want the whole thing to end."
