Robbie Williams flabbergasted as he picks same fan out of crowd 20 years apart

Robbie Williams somehow picked the same fan out of a crowd to join him on stage 20 years apart.

The former Take That star, who has formed an incredible solo career, has fans all over the world who has been with him from the very beginning.

This includes one particular fan in Budapest, who went to see the Millenium singer perform this week – and not for the first time.

Robbie took to Instagram on Thursday where he revealed he had chosen a lucky fan to join him on stage this week, only to learn he had picked out the exact same fan from the audience at a gig in 2003.

He wrote: ‘So this happened two nights ago in Budapest – I chose someone from the audience to come down to the front and, amazingly, I chose the same guy that I picked out from the audience in Budapest 20 years ago!

‘The odds of that happening? 174,240,000 to 1.’

He added that it was ‘nice to see you again, sir.’

Alongside the caption, Robbie shared two photos – one of him with the fan this week, and another of the pair on stage in 2003.

In the newest photo, Robbie rests his head on the man’s shoulder as they both grin at the camera, while in the second the pair have their arms around each other as they prepare to take a bow on stage.

The incredible coincidence sent Robbie fans into meltdown, with more than one commenting on the snaps suggesting the Angels singer should buy a lottery ticket.

Global pop icon Robbie recently revealed he’d like to take his performances to Glastonbury, promising the gig would ‘take heads off.’

The star has performed at Worthy Farm just once across his over three-decades-long career, back in 1998 shortly after launching his solo career.

He told the Robbie Williams Rewind podcast in January that if he was to be asked back he would ‘slaughter it.’

‘It’s one of those times and places, and a reimagination of what Robbie Williams is.

‘When you do Glastonbury, perception changes more than any other festival. Diana Ross could play any festival and not get any traction, but she plays Glastonbury and everybody is talking about it, like Barry Gibb.

‘A lot of people there have an oblique perception of what I am. But if they saw me do it, I would take their heads off.’
