Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams: The Musical

Robbie Williams is planning a musical about his life.

The British singer - who shot to fame as a member of Take That, who he joined when he was just 15 years old - has given his permission for his solo material to be used in a new show being planned for the London stage and bosses have already started auditioning for two "Robbies".

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Robbie is bang up for the musical and thinks it will be a fun production.

"He loves West End shows and is honoured they will be doing one about his life."

A musical based on the life and career of the 'Angels' singer is sure to be filled with drama, from his rise to fame with Take That, to his dramatic departure in 1995, leading him to forge a successful solo career and eventually be honoured with more BRIT Awards than any other artist.

The 36-year-old pop star has also been in rehab several times to be treated for alcohol and drug addictions but has credited his marriage to actress Ayda Field last summer with providing some stability in his life.

He said recently: "Married life is a bit wonderful to be honest, yeah, it really is. Stability and happiness, I'm getting used to it but, you know, it was bound to happen at some point.

"Life feels different, there's like 15 per cent of rubbish that you're carrying round with you, well me anyway, that's just disappeared. It's great being part of a team."

In 2007, a musical based on the songs of Take That toured the UK, before enjoying a London residency the following year.
