1. Joining Take That
2. Coming from Showbiz
Robbie grew up in a household close to show business. His father, comedian and singer Pete Conway, inspired him and cultivated his career. Pete managed the Carmarthen Bay Holiday Village for four seasons.
3. Rich Beyond his Wildest Dreams
In 2002, Robbie signed one of the biggest deals in musical history at the time to the tune of 80 million pounds. While a mind-blowing amount of money, it does not place him among the elite. He reportedly celebrated saying he was rich beyond his dreams and that is good enough.
4. Reaching his Fans
Mr. Williams has played to some of the largest crowds ever gathered in the name of music. In 2003, some of his performances sold out for three nights in a row at 125,000 seats per performance. This was also a televised event that another 3.5 million people watched.
5. Holding the Record
Robbie blows the competition away when it comes to BRIT awards. He has racked up a grand total of 17 BRITs. These do include 5 from his time with Take That, but who is counting?
6. Unidentified Flying Object
During a break from music in 2007, Robbie released a radio documentary discussing his up close encounters of the extraterrestrial kind. Claiming to have been visited from outside visitors no less than three times in his life, Robbie has developed a keen interest with off world entities.
7. Enjoys Vaping
Robbie is one of the few celebrities who not only enjoy vaping but also endorse its use. As of 2016, he even tweeted where he could get his vape needs met in London, which received thousands of replies. Nobody knows much about his favorite flavors though, maybe someone should confirm in an interview.
8. Branching Out
Robbie has tried his hand at other industries than music. In 2005, he played Doogal in the animated film of The Magic Roundabout. He is also a big Port Vale fan and owns shares in the supporter’s club for the team. He also owns his own clothing line called Fareell that he started in 2011. This brand specializes in military styled clothing.
9. Best Blind Date
Any blind date where you get to meet the lovely Ayda Field is considered a win in any book. However, two years later, her and Robbie decided to tie the knot. Twelve years later they are still going strong and have their daughter Theodora Rose.
10. Doesn’t Drive
Back in 2011, Robbie confessed as to never having passing the driving tests despite being close to 40. His mentality claimed that nobody drove in London because traffic is terrible. Of course, London has enough public transit and taxis. Los Angeles also has more than enough ways to get around without a license as well.
