Robbie Williams has kicked off his first UK tour in seven years, aware that there’s been a few changes since he last stepped on a stage.
“My back is f***** and I am stretching every day to make sure I’m in shape for the tour. I’m well aware I have gone a bit ‘dad-sized’,” he told The Sun in the UK.
“My arms are a bit smaller because I cut down on the weights but I’ve still gone to a place that’s not really Thin White Duke, not that I’ve ever been that.”
Williams, who lamented he “used to look like Harry Styles”, said, “Nobody tells you that you carry on getting thicker and thicker, depending on your DNA. I am slowly turning into my father. There’s no getting away from it, the big 4-0 isn’t far away.”
Williams went on to say he’s a “recluse” and doesn’t like being in big crowds, much preferring to stay home with his wife, Ayda, and baby daughter, Teddy.
