Barlow admits that after Williams rejoins the group, Take That have 'too much talent in the room'.
Gary Barlow admits he's struggling to get used to having Robbie Williams back in Take That - because each member had carved out an individual role before his much-hyped return. The band reunited with the "Angels" hitmaker in 2010 for the first time since he walked out on the group in its 1995 heyday.
The group, now with Williams, is gearing up to embark on a summer tour of Europe as a five-piece, and has been in the studio writing new material. But Barlow admits it's hard to get used to having Williams working with the band again - because there is too much talent competing in the same room.
"The band is different with Robbie," he tells Britain's The Sun. "We work in a different way. What we have now is too much talent in the room. When Take That are a four, Mark (Owen) and myself are the leading songwriters. Jay (Jason Orange) joins in on the lyrics and Howard (Donald) starts with the melodies."
"Now you add Robbie and he and Mark are doing the same job - and I can do what they do too. You have three people writing. It's a jigsaw."
