Robbie Williams took an immediate dislike to British pop rival Chris Martin when they met, accusing the Coldplay frontman of being arrogant.

Williams invited the band to his Los Angeles home while they were in the city and immediately bonded with the other three members - but found Martin snidey and aloof.

He tells GQ magazine, "He's also a bit mad isn't he.

"I'd listen to him talk and just think, 'Eh?'"
