Robbie Williams has revealed he resists snacking during lockdown by staying in bed all day.

The 46-year-old singer – who in the past has battled his weight as well as drink and drug addictions – admitted he doesn’t sleep at night, so he stays in bed until noon.

Williams told talkSPORT radio: “I don’t get up in the morning. You know people say I have been fasting, well, no.

"I have just been sleeping through that fast. I don’t sleep until 5am or 6am. I’m a night owl, it is the way I am programmed. I don’t like it.

“I don’t want to be but I am very productive from 1am until 5am. I get a lot done and I wake up at noon. Then I will have a meal at 5pm and I will feel full.”

The ‘Angels’ singer – who became an ambassador for weight loss programme WW in 2018 – admitted to having blow out days when he binges on junk food, but on most days he only eats one meal a day.

Williams said:  “I live saintly all week. We have ‘f*** it Friday’ here. Last week I had McDonald’s fries with ketchup and mayo.

“I do get a sugar hangover. When I put sugar in my system I am a bit depressed and a lot slower than I usually am as sugar is poison. I don’t have sugar six days a week, it inflames.
