British pop star Robbie Williams regrets his decision to give away every award he has ever won.

The Angels singer has scooped more than 70 honours around the world during his 23-year career, and holds the record for winning more Brit Awards and Echo Awards than any other artist.

Williams has never kept any of his prizes, which include 17 Brits, and instead prefers to hand them out to his family and friends, but he now regrets not holding on to the statues.

He tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "I gave them away, and I regret that now. I gave one to (England soccer star) Wayne Rooney, my dad's got one, darts player Phil Taylor's got one."
