Pop sensation Robbie Williams is so worried about his fluctuating waistline - he refuses to quit smoking in case he puts on more weight.

The FEEL singer admits that his much publicised battle with depression means he is reliant on anti-depressants, which in turn have slowed down his metabolism.

And the sexy star has to adhere to a punishing training schedule just to maintain his current figure.

He laments, "Those anti-depressants have screwed up my metabolism. It has slowed right down. I run and walk miles but the weight won't come off."

And Robbie who fears "there is a fat man waiting to get out" has had to shelve plans to ditch smoking in case his metabolism slows up further.
