Robbie Williams has revealed that his father had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
The 46-year-old singer is currently secluded at her Los Angeles home with Ayda Field’s wife and their four children.
Williams said he had experienced “fear and panic” while his 70-year-old father, former singer and comedian Peter, was in England.

He told Mirror: “We have a lot of family problems now. My father has Parkinson’s, my mother-in-law whom I love very much, has a very big illness. We can’t get it. Dad is thousands of miles away.”
Williams added: “My mother is only one year less than 80 and she is alone and I can see things spin in her mind and her eyes go away.”
Judge X Factor, who has been open about his mental health struggle, said he had learned to deal with the problem in a healthier way.
He said: “I noticed at the beginning of the lockdown that I would be afraid. But the difference between me now and the person who used to be … I saw it, thinking ‘That’s interesting – tomorrow will be different’. And that is.”
Former Take That star, Williams, was often joined on stage by Peter, including Robbie’s performance at the Aviva stadium in Dublin in 2017.
