Ex-Take That singer offers advice for former Oasis frontman's solo career

Robbie Williams has spoken about his “man crush” on former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, as well as his advice for the Britpop icon’s upcoming solo career.

Gallagher is set to release his debut solo album next year, while Williams released his latest record ‘Heavy Entertainment Show‘ last week ahead of a 2017 UK tour.

Speaking to NME at a press conference in London on Monday (November 7), Williams said of Gallagher: “He knows exactly what he wants and how he wants to do it. He’s steadfast with all of that. Is he writing it by himself? I’ve been watching the stuff that he’s been doing as regards to the new documentary [Supersonic].”

“I think he’s been incredibly funny, incredibly charismatic, really watchable,” Robbie added. “I’ve got a bit of a man crush on him at the moment actually. I’m looking forward to his album.”

Meanwhile, last night saw the long-awaited and often rumoured reunion of Williams with former boyband Take That. The band came back together as Williams performed a special show at London’s Troxy, to celebrate and accept Williams’ BRITs Icon Award.

Towards the end of the set, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen joined the ‘Party Like A Russian’ and ‘Rock DJ’ star on stage to run through the classic ‘Want You Back For Good’, however the departed Jason Orange was not in attendance.

Williams is also among the acts rumoured to play Glastonbury after the announcement of his UK and Ireland stadium tour seems to coincide with the Worthy Farm event.
