Robbie Williams claims 12th UK solo number one
Robbie Williams has claimed his 12th UK solo number one.
The 42-year-old singer songwriter became the UK's most successful-ever solo artist when his latest record 'Heavy Entertainment Show' reached the top spot and he is "chuffed and humbled".
He told The Sun: "I'm chuffed and humbled by these amazing statistics and facts.
"I'm as proud of this album as much as any other, and hope that the fans enjoy it as much as I loved making it - this is for the friendlies."
Meanwhile, Robbie recently insisted no other musician has an "entertaining temperament" like him.
The star - who boasts over 20 years at the helm of the music industry - has admitted he is confident about taking to the stage for his upcoming European tour and believes he is the ultimate entertainer.
Speaking in a press conference to promote his forthcoming stadium tour for his latest album, the 'Rock DJ' hitmaker said: "If you say things enough it becomes true.
"This tour is going to be huge, my temperament is incredible, nobody has got an entertaining temperament like me and nobody respects women more than I do."
And the star - who married his wife Ayda Field in 2010 with whom he has four-year-old daughter Theodora and two-year-old son Charlton together - believes he will prove his talent in his two-hour shows next year.
He explained: "Which you shall see from my two-hour performance each evening when I shall be respecting women then, nobody does that like me.
"Nobody sings 'Let Me Entertain You' or 'Angels' like me."
