Robbie Williams jokes he should have dated Victoria Beckham instead of Geri Halliwell.

The popstar - who had a fling with the former Spice Girl in the past - opened up about his regrets and told fans at a London concert last night that he picked the wrong member of the iconic group.

"For a long time, as long as I can remember, I've felt a little bit stupid," he told the crowd.

"And I'm the first to admit I've made a couple of mistakes. Two trips to rehab. Rudebox the album. Geri Halliwell - I should have gone for Victoria really, shouldn't I? I'd have been really famous."

The outspoken star - who has been in a relationship with Ayda Field for seven years - also opened up about their daughter Teddy, who they welcomed into the world last September.

"Thirteen months ago, a very special person came into my life.

"Her name is Theodora Rose Williams and she's my daughter. She's the best thing that ever happened to me.

"I took her to nursery for the first time two days ago. She learned to walk 10 days ago. She's the love of my life."
