Robbie Williams: I'm addicted to exercise

Robbie Williams is "obsessed with weights and cardiovascular".

The singer has been embracing a healthier lifestyle recently and has become addicted to hitting the gym to stay in shape.

After years of struggling with his weight, the former Take That star has been showing off a svelte physique on the red carpet recently.

Perhaps his new health kick was partly inspired by his role as a fashion designer, as he recently launched the third collection of his Farrell clothing line.

Robbie admits that he has now taken his health kick to the extreme.

"At the minute my addiction is working out. I'm [obsessed] with weights and cardiovascular and my wife's worried. I'm going on YouTube and figuring out how to do interval training better, but I'm also addicted to Minstrels and prawn cocktail crisps, which offsets the good I'm doing," he told British magazine Shortlist.

The 38-year-old credited fatherhood and his marriage to Ayda Field with helping him to overhaul his lifestyle.

He said that while his baby daughter Theodora Rose will eventually find out about his past struggles, for now he wants to be the dedicated father figure she deserves.

"I've really cleaned up my act for the baby. I've stopped smoking. I was smoking three packs a day. I want to give the baby at least a good year with a responsible parent," he joked.
