SIR Elton John is baffled as to why ROBBIE WILLIAMS struggles to be happy with his phenomenal success.

The CANDLE IN THE WIND legend knew the ANGELS singer was destined for super stardom when he embarked upon his solo career as soon as he left British boyband Take That in 1995.

He says, "I remember sitting in a car with him when he'd just left Take That. He was playing me his tapes and I was telling him he had something and it was all going to be great.

"He didn't believe me back then and it's like he still doesn't believe it now. It's like you just want to shake him."
