Robbie Williams confessed he is addicted to food after finally beating his drink and drugs addiction.
The Take That star has been open about his issues with drugs and alcohol in the past.
He went into rehab in 2007 after taking prescription drugs and class A drugs. His struggles began around the time he left the band in 1995.
And now, the star turned to food but he is ‘managing that addiction’.
“When I was 19 something happened to me one evening where I woke up the next day and I thought, ‘Oh, I’m an alcoholic and I’m an addict.’
“I didn’t do anything about it for another two to three years. I have mainly been a sober person for the majority of my life.”
She continued: “Where I am now as a 46-year-old is content. There’s no binge. The last bastion of negative addictions for me that I can’t cope with is food, and I’m getting that down, I ‘ m managing that, I’m managing that addiction. “
Robbie admits he started taking drugs to try and cope with the enormous fame he experienced from the age of 16 as a member of Take That.
The Angels hitmaker – who became one of the world’s biggest solo stars after quitting the band in 1995 – would drink alcohol and take drugs to try and fulfill people’s expectations of him.
However, it took him a while to understand he didn’t have to destroy himself with substances to please other people.
Speaking on the Bought The T-Shirt podcast, he said: “I took drugs to fill in the blanks.
“When fame came to me at a very early age, I was 16 when I joined Take That, it magnified all of the negative aspects of who I thought I was.

“Before that I was quite content but I was vulnerable and incredibly sensitive.”
In 2009, Robbie painted a picture on what drugs he did and what his lifestyle was like.
He said he would take 20 Vicodin every night and was even ’24 hours away from dying ‘.
“Then I’d take Adderall, which was like speed for people with ADHD. I’d be doing colossal, heart-stopping amounts of that,” Robbie explained.
“You can buy Sativa, which is basically LSD for five minutes. It’s powerful stuff. That’s where I was. You try your best to balance them off against each other but you never manage it.
“It was the American addiction. Prescription pills. It wasn’t the best period of my life. You see Anna Nicole Smith goes off – pills. Michael Jackson goes off – pills. And Heath Ledger. I can relate to all of that. “
