Robbie Williams, 46, has revealed he is currently living “up a mountain in Switzerland” due to his concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The Angels hitmaker, who shares Teddy, seven, and Coco, 23 months, and sons Charlton, five, and Beau, six months, with wife Ayda Field, also opened up about how the virus has changed his life as a result of its impact on the music industry.

When quizzed on whether he is in California during an appearance on Steve Wright’s Radio 2 show, the star surprisingly divulged: “No I’m not. 

“I’m somewhere in Switzerland up a mountain.”

Host Steve quipped: “That’s social distancing in the extreme isn’t it?”

Robbie then admitted he is “a bit neurotic” and is worried about contracting COVID-19.

He explained: “Yeah, well, I’m a bit neurotic and I thought where can I place myself where it won’t get me? 

“And I thought, well I’ll just live up the Mont Blanc for 6 months…”

Fortunately, Robbie has been enjoying his time in the remote location because of the warm weather.

He added: “It’s really warm actually, it’s really lovely.”

Robbie went on to insist he is looking forward to getting back to work and return to performing when possible.

The star divulged: “The performing arts is suffering greatly because of it and, on a personal note from me, I’m so grateful to do what I do for a living and can’t wait to get back to work and start performing again.

“I’m loving my time with my family, I’m loving my time with my wife, I’ve got four kids – it’s joyous.

“But I’m chomping at the bit now to leave the house and do what I do for a living and what I love.”

Elsewhere, Robbie’s wife Ayda, who has been married to the Take That sensation for ten years, opened up about the moment there was a “fork in the road” in their relationship.

“I met Rob in the very beginning of 2007 and we weren’t even engaged or anything and we went to look at this house in Wiltshire and he kind of convinced me to move,” she began.

“And I was kind of still really in the throws of my career and I remember I was so in love with him but there was no ring on the finger.

“He definitely had disappointed me in the past so there was this real conflict.”

Ayda continued: “And I finally agreed to go over there and the day we got there and we landed I got offered another sitcom and he said, ‘Turn it down, I want you to be with me’, and that was the moment like the fork in the road,” she revealed, during a conversation with musician, Eve, on her podcast, Postcards from the Edge.

“Like no one had ever offered me a series before, I had to work hard and I said no to it.”

She went on to say: “And he said it was in that moment that he said he knew that he would always protect me and always take care of me.

“But I didn’t know it at the time!”
