Robbie opened up about his illness 

He said: "How I am is really good. I've been recovering from an illness now for the last five weeks. Unfortunately that illness kicked in just at the end of my tour, a tour which was going so well… I needed to finish that tour, I needed to go to Moscow and I needed to go to St Petersburg… Then I got some test results… They were very worrying and I ended up in ICU, so I couldn't go. I haven't pulled out of a tour for bad health since 1998 so you know if I can't do it then there's something going on that I just can't do it."

The dad-of-two reassured fans that he was taking good care of himself, adding: "Now I am vegan, I do pilates every day. I do yoga every day and have a really big burger on a Sunday. I have a cheat meal. But I’m looking after myself. I know I’m going to be better than ever." His fans were quick to offer their support, with one writing: "Sending LOVE and strength to you Rob, keep up that Yoga, I swear it's magic, it works wonders," while another added: "Glad to hear you are feeling better, nothing is more important than ur health. The concerts and the fans can and will wait!"
