Robbie Williams Wants To Follow In Gary Barlow's Footsteps And Receive OBE

24 November 2012, 09:16

The 'Candy' singer tells the crowd at his O2 Arena show in London that he thinks he deserves the honour.

Robbie Williams has declared that he should be next in line to receive an OBE from The Queen after Take That bandmate Gary Barlow received the honour recently.

The X Factor judge was presented with his OBE by The Queen on Wednesday (21st November) for his services to the entertainment industry and charity.

Speaking at his O2 Arena show in London on Thursday night, Robbie admitted he was jealous and keen to follow in the footsteps of the man he calls "captain".

"The Queen has seen me perform a number of times now," he said. "I was at the Jubilee, singing my little heart out. Then last week, at the Royal Variety Performance, I sang the new single. Pretty well I might add.

"In the line-up at the end, there I am, waiting for a compliment. And she thought I was Pudsey's minder. 

He continued: "Gary Barlow OBE. Robbie Williams? Nothing."

Last night, Robbie performed the second of three shows at the venue and was joined on stage by Gary for two songs during his set.

Gary also posted a message of congratulations, wishing the singer well before he took to the stage on the opening night this week.
