Their lengthy feud dates back three decades after Robbie was described as 'that fat dancer from Take That'

Robbie Williams seemingly reignited his feud with Noel and Liam Gallagher over the weekend during his BST Hyde Park concert, appearing to mock the Oasis frontman's height.

Williams, 50, famously fell out with the Oasis star, 57, and his brother Liam, 51, back at the 2000 BRIT Awards after Noel described Williams as "that fat dancer from Take That."

The pair started off as firm friends and once partied together at Glastonbury in 1995 - after they fell out, Liam offered the Angel's singer an olive branch after Williams revealed his father Pete Conway had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

Liam tweeted: "Oi Robbie balboa it's LG I hear you got shit going down in your fam I'm sorry to hear that love n light going out to your family stay cool and in tune LG".

At the time, Williams was delighted to receive the message from Liam and admitted it "means a lot" to him, before he responded: "Brother, that means a lot to me ..Carry on being celestial. The world needs you. Your fan rob."

However, it seems the once friends are still at loggerheads as over the weekend, Williams took the opportunity to mock Noel whilst walking out on the stage.

In videos shared by concert-goers on social media, the pop star can be seen walking past a little cardboard cutout of Noel and giving him a pat on the head.

Mocking the singer's height, Williams then grinned at the camera, before kicking off his show on the Great Oak stage.

During his set, he reflected on how things turned sour during his infamous weekend at Glastonbury in 1995, where he partied with the Oasis brothers.

Paying tribute, he sang the group's song Don't Look Back in Anger before inviting another friend he'd made at the festival to join him, Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes.

In 2022, Williams reflected on his turbulent relationship with Oasis, branding them "gigantic bullies" at the height of their fame during an interview with Zane Lowe on his Apple Music 1 show.

He said: "It's part of that competitive nature of me too. And also they were gigantic bullies too, to the whole industry, everybody in it. And I didn't like that. And a lot of that still remains inside me.

"They're probably different people now but there's a lot of me that's like, 'They're f***ing bullies, them. I don't like bullies'."

However, Noel recently appeared to pay Williams a backhanded compliment when he said he wished he'd penned 1997's Angels, as he compared it to the Wonderwall hitmakers.

Speaking on The Matt Morgan Podcast, the 55-year-old rocker said: "I’ve heard it. And thought, 'I wish I’d written that.' Angels is Oasis by numbers. Add a f****** electric guitar on it and it would be."

Despite the backhanded comments, Williams has insisted he is still a fan of the band and told The Sun: "I am a big Oasis fan. Nostalgia still pays. I am still that man but sober, 22 years old in my head and a massive fan of Oasis.

"No matter what has been said or what has been done, I still dig the band."
