"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."

Meanwhile, Williams will release his new single 'Candy' in the UK on October 29, while album Take the Crown follows on November 5.
