Tony Parsons in the Daily Mirror: He wanted to be big in America and now he is enormous. Obese, even. Robbie Williams is pictured on a golf course, puffing on a fag, looking far older than his 34 years and far heavier than the rest of Take That put together. A spokesman says that Robbie is piling on the pounds because he is taking a break from showbiz, and because he is so happy. But no pop star can be truly happy when they are as fat as that. Robbie Williams has chucked in the towel. He has given up trying to be Justin Timberlake. He knows he will never crack America. And he makes Amy Winehouse look like she is in great shape.
