Robbie Williams admits huge weight loss is caused by something like Ozempic

First look at Netflix’s new four-part Robbie Williams documentary

Robbie Williams has credited “something like Ozempic” with helping him lose weight, adding that it helped him manage his “type 2 self-loathing”.

A forthcoming Netflix documentary about Robbie, 49, will give fans a closer look at his rise to stardom, his falling out with Take That lead singer Gary Barlow, and having a very public breakdown at the height of his fame.

In a new interview ahead of its release, the Let Me Entertain You hitmaker was asked about his dramatic weight loss, when he admitted weight gain can be “shockingly catastrophic” to his mental health.

“Babe, I’m on Ozempic,” he told The Times, referring to the “skinny jab” that became known as “Hollywood’s worst-kept secret”. “Well, something like Ozempic. It’s like a Christmas miracle.”

Since taking the Ozempic-like drug, Robbie revealed he had lost over a stone, adding: “And I need it, medically. I’ve been diagnosed with type 2 self-loathing.

“It’s shockingly catastrophic to my mental health to be bigger. My inner voice talks to me like Katie Hopkins talks about fat people. It’s maddening.”

Robbie also reflected on his mental health battles in the latest trailer for his upcoming Netflix docuseries.

The four-part show’s release on November 8 will combine never-before-seen footage of Robbie with new interviews.

In the trailer, he began by reflecting on his journey and career before opening up about how the pressure got to him, resulting in a “nervous, mental breakdown in front of thousands of people”.

Over the years, Robbie has been open about his ongoing battle with mental illness and, when his fame was at an all-time high, the pop star hit his lowest point.

From 2006 to 2009, Robbie battled agoraphobia – a social anxiety disorder that, he says, left him housebound for three years.

Robbie previously revealed he went into rehab in 2007 after taking speed, acid, heroin, cocaine and “heart-stopping” amounts of prescription drugs.

The musician is now sober and married to wife Ayda Field. Together, they share four children: Teddy, 10, Charlie, eight, Coco, four, and Beau, three.
