Robbie Williams' most morto moments of all time
He’s coming to the Aviva. Let’s look back at some of his clangers.

ROBBIE WILLIAMS IS coming back to Ireland this June when he’ll play a gig in the Aviva Stadium.

Many Irish people hold golden memories of Robbie owning the stage at Slane Castle, or back on stage with Take That in recent years.

However, let’s be real about this. Robbie’s had some pretty embarrassing moments over the years.

What better time than now to take a stroll down memory lane?  Here are his most morto moments.

The time he went mad at Glastonbury

It was the Summer of 1995 and he was just about to leave Take that, when he turned up at Glastonbury with bleached hair and spent the weekend with Liam and Noel Gallagher.

He even wound up coming on stage with Oasis to do some Bez style dancing during Shakermaker.  Scarleh’ for his ma for having him.

The time he challenged Liam to a fight

Unfortunately his friendship with the Gallaghers didn’t last long, and they exchanged many jibes in the press.  Our favourite?  Liam calling Robbie “that fat dancer from Take That”.

As a result Robbie challenged Liam Gallagher to a fight at the Brits in 2000, the challenge and the fallout, was outlined here on Channel 4′s My Funniest Year.

Noel was, as always, the voice of reason.

Robbie, come ON.  Don’t you know that’s dangerous?  And that’s his mam in the background and everything.

Ah Robbie, give it up, wouldja?  You’re never going to be punk no matter how hard you try.

You are a very good pop star though.

Alright, alright, this may not be a morto moment for him.  (In fact, some of you probably dream of a moment like this.)

Scarlet for her though.

He’s mad for the Brits our Robbie.

Around the time this photo was taken Robbie told some Radio 1 DJs that he and Geri were friends…who slept together.

The time Madame Tussauds made this his waxwork

Not just his waxwork, but his interactive waxwork.  You could "activate the twinkle in his eye by placing a kiss on his cheek".

Every time he tried to be a hard man

Come on Robbie, we know you're a lovely man.  Stop trying to hide it!

The time he got "weird and fat, looking at UFOs"

He even e-mailed Jon Ronson to invite him to go and meet alien abductees with him.
