Robbie Williams predicts brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher will be forced to reform their band Oasis because their solo careers wont last.
The new X Factor judge has reignited his feud with the rockers by claiming theyll have no choice but come back together for the sake of their reputation; because hes convinced the next album they release as solo artists wont perform well.
Speaking to The Sun newspapers Bizarre, the 44-year-old singer said: I think there will be [a reunion]. Liam Gallagher has just come back and hes done pretty well. He had a platinum record with his solo album and I think thats what everybody was waiting for. I think the next time he releases an album it wont do as well.
Noels album didnt do too good either. I think it sold like 70,000 copies or something, which for Noel isnt great. If theyre anything like me, which I think they are, they will want to be doing the most successful thing they can do, and the most successful thing they can do is a reunion. I think theyll both need to do it.
Robbie and the Gallagher brothers have been at loggerheads since 2000 when he challenged Liam to a fight at the Brit Awards and then a decade later told his brother Noel to kiss his perfectly formed backside while he was on stage.
But Robbie wasnt the only one dishing out insults as Noel famously referred to him as the fat dancer from Take That while Liam branded him a fat fucking idiot in 2013.

Meanwhile, Liam – who famously fell out with his older brother, leading to the demise of their group in 2009 – took to social media recently to insist he forgives Noel for what has happened in the past and admit he would love reform Oasis.
He said: Earth to noel listen up rkid I hear your doing gigs where people cant drink alcohol now thats the BeZarist thing youve done yet I forgive you now lets get the BIG O back together and stop f***ing about the drinks are on me LG x (sic)
