Are Take That fulfilling their dream to Rule The World? Band take over the TV as they perform on X Factor AND Strictly Come Dancing in one weekend



Guest star: Robbie Williams joined One Direction for a duet on the first X Factor final show on Saturday night

They are arguably the most famous band in the world at this moment, enjoying renewed success after Robbie Williams rejoined the group.

But this weekend Take That decided to take over our televisions as they performed on both X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing.

As well as the band performing on Strictly both Saturday and Sunday nights, Robbie joined forces with One Direction on The X Factor on Saturday, before taking to the stage once again for a performance with the band on last night's X Factor final.

And their choice of songs didn't vary too widely either, as they performed The Flood on Strictly on Saturday and X Factor last night, before mixing it up with a rendition of Back For Good on Strictly on Sunday night.

And after their astonishing schedule this weekend, fans took to Twitter speculating where the group would pop up next.

One wrote: 'Are Take That gonna be on Match of the Day as well? What about Desperate Housewives? Snooker?'

While another tweeted: 'Just waiting for Take That to make an appearance in the snooker final!! Well they've been on everything else this weekend-why not?!???'

Back for good: The boys also performed one of their most famous hits on Strictly last night

A further viewer wrote: 'Also, Take That will make appearances on the News At Ten, the Snooker, Sky Sports News, Celebrity Juice, BBC News 24 and Cbeebies!'

But not all of Take That's performances this weekend were without controversy.
It is claimed that the band were keen to be accompanied by dancers dressed as riot police as they performed their new single Kidz on last night's X Factor final.

However, Simon Cowell was thought to have been less than impressed with the idea, telling the group the costumes were 'inappropriate' in light of clashes between students and the authorities over university fees last week.

A source told The Sun: 'When Simon found out about the riot cop fear he was upset.
'For him, The X Factor is an entertainment show pure and simple. It's about people having a good time - it's not about politics.

'He thought it wasn't on. He told Take That it was insensitive and inappropriate and asked them to change things.

'Take That might be a huge band, but when it comes to the X Factor, Simon calls the shots.'

Controversial: Take That had originally wanted to perform new single Kidz with dancers dressed as riot police, but Simon Cowell objected to the idea

So the boys decided to leave the dancers and opted for an energetic performance of their single The Flood.

The band - Robbie, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Jason Orange - have been working hard to ensure their new album Progress is a huge success.

And their hard work has paid off, as the album was named the fastest-selling record for 13 years.

Now it has been announced that the group will be performing as one of the headlining acts at the BRIT Awards 2011 at London' s O2 Arena on 15th February.
