Robbie Williams has revealed he is living up a mountain in Switzerland to avoid the coronavirus.

The Let Me Entertain You singer said he was a bit “neurotic” and wanted to do what he could to avoid contracting the illness.

He opened up about his decision during a chat with Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2, when he was asked where he was currently living.

Wright thought Williams was in the US but the star shared that he was actually in Switzerland.

When the DJ suggested that was taking social distancing pretty far, Williams 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 six months.”

The singer – who has four young children with his wife Ayda – said it was “really warm” and “really lovely” where he was.

Fans of Robbie and Ayda might already have had an inkling about their location thanks to pictures of mountainous scenery shared on Instagram.

Last month Ayda posted a sweet snap of them kissing to mark their 10th wedding anniversary and mountains could be seen in the background.

She wrote: "@robbiewilliams August 7, 2010...I said ‘I Do’...10 years, 8 dogs, 4 kids, 3 cats, 2 turtles, and 1 best friend later, ‘I Do’ all over again. Let’s keep climbing this mountain ‘til we reach the top...HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BOO. WIFEY XXX.”

The couple tied the knot in August 2010 and have gone on to have four children together.

They welcomed daughter Teddy in 2012 and son Charlie was born in 2014. In 2018, their daughter Coco was brought into the world via a surrogate, and earlier this year they revealed that they had used the same surrogate to have baby boy Beau.
