Robbie Williams: '1D's Harry Could Be Solo Star Like Me'

Take That star has backed Hazza for success outside of One Direction...

Robbie Williams has stated he believes One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles could be a big solo star, much like himself.

The Candy singer, who performed on The X Factor last night (28th October), claims Styles has the ability to leave 1D and kick start his own career outside of the group.

Williams told The Metro: "I remember being 21, seeing George Michael, who's ten years older, and thinking, 'There's a vacancy there'.

"So there must be a Harry Styles looking at me, going, 'He's over the hill now'."

Robbie went on to admit that his successful reunion with Take That has given him the confidence to be even more successful, saying: "I'm obsessed... with pop music, being a pop star, being successful, not being a has-been.

"A lot of things happened with the boys. The most amazing thing was that we sorted out the past."

He added: "Also, I had 27 minutes to myself in a stadium, where I remembered how to do it. That was the big shot in the arm."


Who do you think will be the break-out star of 1D?
