Robbie Williams may be on top of the world following the birth of his baby daughter but he has confessed that he is jealous of One Direction.
The singer, who is set to make his solo comeback next month, denied reports that he dislikes the boyband, but said he wish he could travel the world with them.
''I'm jealous of them and I wish I was doing it all with them," Williams told BBC Newsbeat. "I've met all the boys, but it was a long time ago.
"I am quoted as saying, 'Robbie Williams slammed One Direction. Robbie Williams had a go at One Direction'. I really didn't - I love the boys."
He added: "I'm looking forward to seeing where the road takes them for many years to come I hope. They do perform like they've never met each other and there's a certain charm to that too. It's brilliant."
