The Sex Bomb hitmaker has given the green light to Robbie Williams to portray him in a retelling of his life.

Ooh. Didn’t fancy letting Gary Barlow have a go at some of your hits, Tom?

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, the 76-year-old music legend said he has already offered the Party Like A Russian singer, 43, his seal of approval and revealed: “I said Robbie would be it.”

We have to admit this is something we’d love to see!

The pair have developed a firm friendship over the years since Take That stormed the music scene in 1992 with their debut single ‘It Only Takes A Minute Girl’. However, Tom admitted he would prefer to do the singing in a forthcoming movie himself, despite Robbie’s success in the boyband and as a solo artist.

“Maybe it would be better to get an actor. I can always do the voice if needs be so it doesn’t have to be a singer.”

Meanwhile, the star also admitted that he has thrown himself into work since the death of his beloved wife Linda last year.

Speaking about seeing a therapist to help him cope, he explained: “She said ‘you’ve got to carry on, if you don’t you’ll die’.

“I’m happier when I’m singing than when I’m not. The only time I’d take time off is when I die.”
“When my wife passed away, god bless her, I didn’t know whether I would make it.

“I mean I really didn’t want to sing. My son Mark helped me tremendously, he said ‘you’ve got to sing’ because I didn’t know whether I could.

Speaking previously about the loss of his wife of 59 years, Tom said: “My wife passed away last year and I am still trying to get over that.

“I don’t think if I ever will remarry – the last thing on my mind is marriage.”
