Robbie Williams has recorded vocals for the Grenfell Tower charity single.

The 43-year-old singer flew into London on Monday (19.06.17) from Ireland - where he's currently on tour - to join the Artists for Grenfell team in recording a charity single aimed to raise money for those affected by the horrific blaze which engulfed the 27-storey building last week, killing over 70 and injuring many others.

Robbie was spotted outside Sarm Studios waving to fans before he headed inside to lay down his vocals on the cover of Simon and Garfunkel's classic hit 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'.

Britain's Got Talent's Jamie Lee Harrison falsely claims he'll feature on the Grenfell Tower fire charity single . Vocalists that are in the rumoured line-up include Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Robbie Williams among others. A music business source told the newspaper: “This is really disgusting.

The 'Party Like A Russian' hitmaker has joined the likes of Emeli Sande, Rita Ora, Kelly Jones, John Newman and Stormzy on the track.

Meanwhile, it was previously reported the One Direction could temporarily reunite for the single after going on hiatus in 2016 as members Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have already been confirmed to feature while Niall Horan and Harry Styles are desperately trying to clear their schedules for the gig.

A source said: "If all four [One Direction] came on board, it would be as solo acts as Liam has to record in the US."

The idea for the charity single came from music mogul Simon Cowell, who contacted numerous record labels the day after the horrific blaze to compile a list of artists to record on the single in a bid to raise money to help anyone affected by the disaster.

Originally, Simon had expected to get the single released by Monday, but it has now been pushed back to Wednesday (21.06.17) as more and more stars have stepped up to be involved.

Simon said previously: "We will record it hopefully and finish it Sunday, latest Monday (19.06.17). We already started to get a lot of people calling in saying, 'of course we would love to do it'. I do genuinely believe this will make a difference."

The Grenfell Tower charity single, which was recorded in London on Monday (19Jun17), has topped the U.K. charts. Simon Cowell brought stars like Robbie Williams, The Who, Rita Ora, and Louis Tomlinson together to perform a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water to support the blaze victims' families and survivors of last week's (12Jun17) tragedy. The track sold 170,000 copies in less than 48 hours and had the biggest first day sales of any single released this decade, according to the Official Charts Company. The song also features residents and survivors of the tower block disaster. Cowell lives in the same London borough as Grenfell Tower, and quickly called on his famous friends to unite and record a version of the famed former duo's classic. The tune was released on Wednesday (21Jun17), with fans rushing to congratulate Simon for his role in organising the track, from which all proceeds will go to The London Community Foundation. "Downloaded the beautifully done single Bridge over Troubled Water..gave me goosebumps well done to all involved @SimonCowell #GrenfellTower," one person wrote on Twitter. And another added: "Driving to work, and 'Bridge over troubled water' Charity single comes on the radio.wow. #bridgeovertroubledwater #GrenfellTower.
