Take That on Robbie BRITS Snub
Many say the comeback kings shoulda name-checked him in their acceptance speech...
Take That have been accused of snubbing their former bandmate Robbie Williams in his hour of need, by not mentioning him ONCE during last night's Brit Awards (February 14).
Fourteen-times winner Robbie was conspicuous by his absence at the bash, but while many stars on the red carpet wished him the best with his rehab treatment, Take That, who won the best single gong for 'Patience', remained tight-lipped.
Some fans were shocked, but speaking after the event, Jason Orange explained, We didnt thank Robbie because it is about his private situation. Its not for us to comment. Hes going through a personal problem and we wish him the best - we love him.
And we here at MTV.co.uk reckon the boys should be allowed to bask in their own moment of glory.
The foursome won their gong - which was voted for by the public - with a landslide vote, and looked emotional as they took to the stage.
Jason had lumps in throats trembling even more when he paid a moving tribute to his estranged dad who was in the audience, and backstage Gary Barlow ramped up the emotion levels when he summed up the current feeling in the Take That camp. "This is as high as we can get," he said.
Well done, boys.
