Robbie Williams has announced that he wants the Grimes twins to win X Factor.

The former Take That star performed his first full concert for three years at London’s Roundhouse on Tuesday night before announcing his favourites to win the show.

He opened his Electric Proms show with new single Bodies before telling the crowd: “You nearly made me cry then, but then I realised it’s not The X Factor.”

“Go for the twins, John and Edward all the way.”

Tuesday’s performance also set a world record for the most simultaneous cinematic screenings of a live concert.

The show was screened in more than 250 cinemas across 23 countries with tens of thousands of fans across Europe watching the show as it happened.

Earlier this month, Robbie previewed his new single on a live X Factor show but former winner Alexandra Burke’s single Bad Boys beat him to the number one spot in the charts.
