Robbie Williams has revealed his struggle with "night eating". The 42-year-old has admitted that he often wakes up and takes a trip to the kitchen to satisfy his food cravings.

"I'm night eating. I get up in the middle of the night, go to the fridge," he confessed to Italy's Radio Deejay. Although the singer did not specify which foods he tends to reach for, he described the experience as "weird" when finding himself in front of the fridge. "I don't want lettuce, I'm not looking for lettuce. It's so weird," he said.

Robbie Williams has revealed he struggles with 'night eating'

It's not the first time that Robbie has spoken about the condition. Earlier this year, the former Take That singer took to Twitter to share his surprise with fans when he initially realised he was sleepwalking in the middle of the night.

"So this actually happened: Sleep walking to the fridge," he wrote. "Then sleep eating. Found out the next day."

It seems that in his sleepy state, Robbie made some unusual choices about what food to go for. In a separate tweet, he told fans: "To answer what i ate - Macaroni and cheese (cold) and cookies dipped in peanut butter ..Lots of.."

Robbie's wife Ayda revealed the singer has been on a diet for years

Wife Ayda Field has previously spoken about Robbie's eating habits, revealing that he has been on a diet since his Take That days. "He was called fat when he was 15 in Take That, which I think is disgusting," she said during an appearance on ITV's Loose Women. "He has been on a diet ever since."

The Millennium hitmaker is renowned for speaking openly about his health, and earlier this year opened up demons from his past including his battle with addiction and his mental health issues.

"There was always a lack of self-worth, a lack of confidence," he told the Evening Standard. "That's sort of driven my life. Both as a curse and a blessing. It's driven everything forward and keeps me moving forward, too.

"I also think that the neurosis is interesting. It's much more interesting to be a little bit broken and talk about your vulnerabilities. I don't have a choice either way, because I am built for oversharing."
