Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams: 'London Is Too Expensive For Me'

British singer Robbie Williams is eyeing a move to London, but fears he will struggle to afford the "astronomical" property prices.

The Angels hitmaker, who is worth an estimated $160 million (£100 million), was shocked to discover the cost of living in the British capital's more affluent areas after spending several years based in Los Angeles.

However, Williams still wants to head back to his native U.K. so his two-month-old daughter Theodora Rose, his first child with wife Ayda, can have an English upbringing.

The pop star, who also owns a $12.8 million (£8 million) home in Wiltshire, England, has even put his soccer-themed Beverley Hills mansion up for sale ahead of the move.

He says, "Ayda loves it here (in Britain). I can't stand the weather here but I love the people, I love our sense of humour, I love our culture. We are buying (property) in London, so Teddy will definitely have a European accent of some sort...

"I don't want to educate our baby in L.A. because I would much prefer her to have English sensibilities. They are idiots in L.A. schools.

"It's going to be Holland Park or Chelsea (in London). But prices are astronomical. I don't know how anybody can afford to live in London, full stop. It's oligarch-kind-of-cash. It's all unrealistic."
