Robbie Williams has revealed that he knew he was probably going to die when he was using drugs in the past.

Speaking to the Daily Mail Weekend magazine he said: "I managed to escape by the skin of my teeth and I'm lucky. I was days away from dying quite a few times on all manners of substances."

He continued: "Unfortunately I've been in a place where I didn't care if I was on the planet or not. I do care now, but at the time I was so deep into addiction I knew I was probably going to die soon, but I didn't care."

Williams now has wife Ayda Field and 14-month-old daughter Theodora Rose in his life, and added that looking back on his past is like looking at a different person.
