After reportedly being blown away by Robbie's talents, Hugh is said to have offered the star a role in his Greatest Showman sequel.

A source said: "The Robbie and Hugh bromance is just going from strength to strength.

"Hugh wants space to be made for them to do a number and sing and act in his Greatest Showman sequel.

"Hugh and others are staying quiet until deals with Fox Studios are secured, but he is going to be a producer which means he will have a say on the cast. Robbie even doing one number would be fun."

Ent Daily has contacted a rep for Robbie for comment.

The Robbie and Hugh bromance is just going from strength to strength.

Earlier this year, Hugh spoke about Robbie joining him on stage for his tour.

He told Capital FM's Marvin Humes: "Concerts should feel like something happened that night that couldn't happen anywhere else", and it's safe to say that ex-Take That star Robbie will deliver just that."

Meanwhile, Robbie is currently sunning himself abroad with his wife Ayda Field and their three children.

The couple are parents to Theodora, six, Charlie, four, and baby Coco - who was born last September.
