One Direction Invite Robbie Williams To Join Band
The lads admit they are huge fans of the Take That star...
The Take Thatstar previously admitted that he was envious of The X Factor group's current success, telling BBC Newsbeat: "I'm jealous of them and I wish I was doing it all with them. 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."
Williams 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."
Responding to Robbie's remarks, Liam Payne told Capital FM: "That is amazing. We are actually massive fans of Robbie Williams. And after singing on the show with him and stuff."
Louis Tomlinson agreed: "He can join us anytime. [The] invitation is there."
Zayn Malik added: "He can join whenever he wants - he knows that. It's cool."
1D also hit the headlines this week after their new video for single Live While We're Young leaked online, forcing the lads to premiere the promo earlier than planned.
