Robbie Williams would love to play Glastonbury's legends slot.

The former Take That star played the Somerset festival back in 1998 and has said performing at the Pyramid Stage on at the Sunday afternoon next year would be a huge thrill.

Asked if he'd like to play the famous tea time slot on BBC Breakfast, he replied: "Yeah, that’d be cool. Actually, I’d like to do that. I’d like another go round on that stage and feel that audience and get the chance to do it.”

After Colin Paterson revealed The Spice Girls' Mel C had her eye on the legends slot in 2023, he added: "The Spice Girls trumps a Robbie Williams so maybe I’ll have to wait”.

The 48-year-old pop star gushed: “It is the epicentre of the music world for that weekend. Everybody’s watching, everybody’s got their eyes on it.

“And that kind of thing doesn’t exist these days because music on TV has died a death and music being a potent, viable thing that gets you to sit down on a Thursday night at seven o’clock for a half an hour now doesn’t exist.

“So yeah, it’s a big deal.”

Meanwhile, Robbie Williams is celebrating 25 years as a solo artist and have just scored a UK No.1 album with his orchestral greatest hits collection XXV.

Though he's one of the biggest-selling UK artists of all time, Williams is happy and "incredibly grateful" that his career has continued to move forward after Take That.

He told the news channel: "My big feeling is, my best years professionally could have been from when I was 16 to 21 when I was in Take That.

“I know how brittle my ego is and I know how fragile I am as a human being and to be a has-been … or whatever it was that would have happened to me after Take That, I’m incredibly grateful that the ship still goes forward. That’s it.

“In short, I’m incredibly grateful, that’s what the anniversary has done for me.”
