We all have reasons why we put on weight but Robbie Williams has come up with a corker!
He says that he has piled on the pounds because he has given up sleeping around and has instead turned to cake.
The dad of two said that married life has changed him totally.
“It’s interesting, having a wife now and being the guy I was,” he is reported to have said by The Mirror.
“The sort of faders you have to turn up and down.
“It’s like there’s the sex-with-strangers, turn that one down.
“Which one can we turn up? Cake. More cake and carbohydrates.”
The singer recently attributed his weight gain to a nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder, which means he’ll head straight to the fridge for a twilight snack without even waking from his slumber.
He explained: “I’m doing this very weird thing, for over a year now, where I night eat.
“I’m absolutely asleep and I get up and eat. I’m not aware I’m doing it.
“And apparently in my sleep I don’t want kale – I want sugar and loads of it.”
He added: “It leaves me not a lot of room for eating bad stuff during the day because bad stuff happens at night when I am asleep.”
