Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow may have kissed and made up, but old rivalries still run deep as Robbie wants to get an award from the queen just like his pal.

Earlier this week, Gary picked up an OBE at Buckingham Palace in recognition of his work in the entertainment industry and for charity.

In recent years, Gary has helped organise a charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro, hosted the Queen's Jubilee concert and recorded the charity single Sing.

However, Robbie has now admitted he wants an OBE too, telling fans during his gig at London's O2 Arena that he has set his sights on royal recognition.

Robbie told the audience: "The Queen has seen me perform a number of times now, I was at the Jubilee. Then last week, at the Royal Variety Performance, I sand the new single. Pretty well I might add. In the line-up at the end, there I am, waiting for a compliment, and she thought I was Pudsey's minder. Gary Barlow OBE. Robbie Williams? Nothing."

Robbie can't have too many hard feelings for his former Take That bandmate, as the Rock DJ star appeared on stage during one of Gary's live shows only days later to perform his new track Different, with Gary accompanying him on piano.

    In what could be the the campest bromance in celebville, perma-tanned TV presenter Dale and 'Little Britain' star David Walliams are the best of mates and are often spotted dining out together.

  • Matt Cardle and Aiden Grimshaw

    The two former 'X Factor' contestants bonded a lot during their time on the show, which Cardle won in 2010. Grimshaw started strongly but came a disappointing ninth!

  • George Clooney and Brad Pitt

    Brad Pitt and George Clooney go way back and are widely recognised as best friends off the screen too. The partners-in-crime have been in four films together and also teamed up to start a charity.

  • Nick Grimshaw and Harry Styles

    Grimmers and Harry are practically joined at the hip, and Hazza was there for his bezzie again when he launched his Radio 1 breakfast show <a href="http://www.metro.co.uk/showbiz/914269-fans-beg-harry-styles-to-join-nick-grimshaws-radio-1-show-full-time">, which went down so well that fans were begging Styles to join full-time.</a>

    Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are, like Clooney and Pitt, very close, having written 'Good Will Hunting' together, which won them an Oscar, and are planning to continue making movies together.

  • Ant and Dec

    Where would British television presenting be without the veteran Geordie boys? Who else could we trust to laugh sheepishly at weird people on Britain's Got Talent? They've been in the biz for over twenty years together and can STILL stand the sight of each other - they even live around the corner from one another.

  • Kanye West and Jay-Z

    Two supremely talented artists combined to form one rap supergroup this year for the album 'Watch The Throne', which finally united Jay-Z and Kanye West together on record. The duo, two of the most powerful me in music, are best of buds too!

  • Tom Felton and Rupert Grint

    They might be mortal enemies in the films, but Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy - or rather, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are the best of friends off-screen. Grint even wore a 'I Love Tom Felton' t-shirt on the red carpet at one premiere.

  • Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford

    Ed, centre, and Chace, right, two-thirds of the male contingent of Gossip Girl have propped up the hot, well-spoken rich male TV trope all on their own for the past few years - both on and off screen. Good men.
