About the Spice Girls, he said the long-running joke has to stop.

'When I've said something that hurts somebody, I feel really bad about it.' 

Robbie also mentioned former One Direction band member Harry Styles and said he is coping with fame better than what he did at the same age.

The former Take That band member admitted however the pair are a little different, with Robbie used to have romances with whoever was hanging around in his hotel, while Harry is 'smart' and 'goes out.'

Robbie's comments this week about the Spice Girls come after he denied to Nova's Fitzy and Wippa that he slept with 'four out of five' of the group.

Robbie, who was previously reported to be in a relationship with Spice Girls' Geri Halliwell, said it was all a 'joke.'

'I told a joke a long time ago. And it sort of got out of hand. You know 'Back for good' the Take That song, I used to sing that on stage,' Robbie said.

'I still do. On one particular tour before it I introduced it by saying ' I am very fortunate to have been in Take That and 4 out 5 of the Spice Girls.' That was my intro to the song and it was a joke and the joke went too far.'

He added he'd like to apologise to the former girl group and their partners.

'I would like to apologise to all the Spice Girls involved and their husbands and boyfriends. I know a few husbands and boyfriends weren't too happy with the joke.'

Last month, he also insisted the line was all a joke when speaking to Kyle And Jackie O.

'That was my joke. That was just a joke - and it got me into a lot of trouble. And that joke carried on and has followed me through my career since I've said it.'

Adding fuel to the fire! His wife, Ayda Field, 37, (pictured) recently made headlines after claiming on the UK's Loose Women that her husband had slept with most of the Spice Girls

'And now my wife has taken that joke and ran with it herself. When we all know it was five our five and not four out of five!' he quipped. 

His wife, Ayda Field, 37, recently made headlines after claiming on the UK's Loose Women that her husband had slept with most of the Spice Girls.

Back in July, TV host Kaye Adams began by asking: 'Ayda, did Robbie 'know' the Spice Girls?'

The outspoken 37-year-old replied, 'Yes he did,' before admitting he 'knew' Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie C.

Later on in the episode, Ayda was asked if Robbie also 'knew' Victoria Beckham, and she replied: 'Let's stop!'

Meanwhile, Mel C has denied Robbie's claims he bedded 'four out of five' Spice Girls in an interview with Closer magazine.
