Robbie Williams' fans have expressed their worries after his wife Ayda Field shared a snap of the singer on Instagram that sparked weight loss speculation. The 50 year old pop icon and ex-Take That member, who has been open about his battles with weight and body dysmorphia, was seen Robbie lying down sporting a shirt featuring the infamous Milli Vanilli and tiger print underwear.

Although Robbie appears slimmer in the photo, it's possible that the angle, combined with him lying down, may be playing tricks on the eye. Ayda captioned the image: "Welcome Home, Baby #guesswho #homesweethome #eyeofthetiger @robbiewilliams AWx".

With Robbie set to take the stage at BST Hyde Park come July, fans didn't hesitate to voice their concerns on the post. One fan commented: "Robbie's lost so much weight [shock face emoji]", while another posted: "Omg why is he so skinny."

A third chimed in with: "OMG! ! Why he is so skinny? His legs looks like arms.", reports the Mirror.

However, some of Robbie's supporters were quick to defend him against the worried remarks, with one saying: "People need to stop going on about Robbie's weight, nothing to do with you, not your body so keep your nose out. Anyway, I think he looks fantastic."

Another supporter hit back at the critics: "looking gooood @robbiewilliams And to the people on here that just criticise, does it make you feel better about yourselves to criticize how he looks? ".

Robbie Williams previously sparked a discussion about body weight and self-perception in a reflective Instagram post, using an illustration with the words: "My ideal goal weight is people being worried about me." The caption went on to explore a hypothetical scenario, asking readers: "So, If a genie appeared and said you can either have your superpower be the ability to fly or eat what you want and remain at your goal weight? I would go for goal weight eating every day. What about you? ".

He then delved into his personal struggles with self-image, stating: "I could write a book about self-loathing where my body image is concerned. Like pure self-hatred, The ugliness of feeling ugly. I'm body dysmorphic and on top of being dysmorphic at times, I can be 40+ pounds overweight. So you can imagine what my mind sees. Or maybe you can't either way it's a f*****g disaster."

The former Take That star reaffirmed ongoing mental battles he was grappling with despite his current physical shape. He wrote: "At the moment I'm skinny... But me being me, my mind is going, 'F*****g great Rob, you managed to get skinny and now your old, congrats, golf clap. The struggle is real, the sadness shocking. I've had it all my life. And it won't abate."

Beyond discussing body image, Robbie has previously taken advantage of social media platforms to discuss personal matters, such as past cosmetic procedures that left him resembling the comic character Desperate Dan. In an Instagram admission, he reminisced: "One time I had a few things done, botox, fillers and something done to my chin that made me look like desperate Dan. Perhaps [about] 5 years ago."

Mirror Online has reportedly reached out to representatives for Robbie Williams for further comments.
