Robbie: Oasis deserve Brit gong

Robbie Williams says Oasis deserve a Brit for Morning Glory
Robbie Williams says Oasis deserve a Brit for Morning Glory

Robbie Williams reckons Oasis should win a Brit award for their album (What's The Story) Morning Glory?.

It's a stunning turnaround for the former Take That star, who once counted Liam and Noel Gallagher as sparring partners, even famously challenging them to a fight in 2000.

The rockers are up for the best album of the last 30 years honour, and Robbie told The Sun: "Of the potential winners Oasis definitely deserve it - it's been my favourite album of the last 30 years."

Frontman Liam is expected to attend the glitzy ceremony at London's Earls Court, but Robbie insisted their rivalry won't be reignited.

"We've all grown up a bit so there won't be any trouble," he added.

Robbie - who's engaged to American actress Ayda Field - will be honoured with the Brit award for outstanding contribution but claimed he's uncomfortable with the tribute.

"I have never been the best at receiving awards - I don't know how people go up there and say, 'Yeah, I deserved it'. There's part of me that constantly undermines myself," he said.

"It's difficult for me to say whether you deserve anything or not, because, if you ask me, I don't think I do."

:: The Brit Awards, hosted by Peter Kay, will be held at London's Earls Court on February 16 and shown live on ITV1 at 8pm.
