The star says he admires both artists - but that's all he's willing to say...

ROBBIE WILLIAMS has denied recent speculation that he is to work with either RONAN KEATING or CRAIG DAVID in the future.

Speaking ahead of sell-out weekend shows at Dublin’s 45,000 plus capacity Lansdowne Road, Williams says he admires them both but will remain mute about who he plans to work with in the future or who he likes in case his words get misconstrued.

“I saw Ronan a few months ago and he thought I’d been slagging him off,” he told BBC Radio 1. “I daren’t mention anybody’s name in anything that I do or say because I get scared of it being misconstrued”.

Following his Dublin appearances (July 6 & 7), Williams‘ sold-out UK tour dates are as follows:

Millennium Stadium, Cardiff (July 14/15)

Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield (18)

Milton Keynes Bowl (20/21/22)

Old Trafford, Manchester (27/28/29)

International Stadium, Gateshead (August 1)

Hampden Park, Glasgow (4/5)
