Robbie Williams was rushed to intensive care ahead of him cancelling the final dates of his European tour back in September.

The 43-year-old singer had to postpone the Russian dates of his 'The Heavy Entertainment Show Tour' earlier this year and has now revealed he was admitted to hospital straight away after receiving ''very worrying'' test results.

Addressing his health scare in a video posted to his YouTube account, he said: ''So, how am I 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. The audiences were incredible, I was okay, the band were amazing. I was a soldier and I needed to finish that tour and 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 (Intensive Care Unit), so I couldn't go. I haven't pulled out of a tour for bad health since 1998 so you know that if I can't do it then there's something going on that I just can't do it. Russia, I love you, I can't wait to come and party with you ... I got all of your good thoughts and prayers and well wishes and they all meant a lot to me. Especially five weeks ago.''

And Robbie - who has Theodora, five, and Charlton, two, with his wife Ayda Field - insists he is ''nearly'' 100 percent better five weeks on.

He quipped: ''Now I am vegan, I do pilates every day, I do yoga every day and have a really big burger on a Sunday so I'm not fully that guy - I still have a cheat meal. But I'm looking after myself ... I can't wait to get back to work. I'm not feeling 100 percent [better] but I'm nearly there and I know I'm going to be better than ever.''
