Robbie Williams's foray into fashion has come to an end with his label Farrell closing.

The singer launched the menswear firm in 2011, which he named after the surname of his sharp-dressed grandfather.

He has also worn clothes from his collection in photoshoots and on stage, including his performance for last year's Diamond Jubilee celebration in front of Buckingham Palace.

But the company - together with a pop-up shop in London's Covent Garden - ceased trading on Monday, according to a statement.

Items from his range, which was overseen by Ben Dickens, a former design director at Burberry, were stocked at Selfridges and House of Fraser stores.

Williams expressed his thanks for the support of the retail industry and added: " I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the talented Ben Dickens and will miss creating and working with him and wish him every luck for the future."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
