Take That formed in 1989 and went on to achieve 12 number one singles on the UK Singles Chart along with eight number one albums and are currently the most successful boy band in UK chart history.

The original line-up featured Robbie, who left the band in 1995 and forged a phenomenally successful solo career. The group disbanded a year later.

In 2006 the band – minus Robbie – reunited and enjoyed great success once more.
