Pop hunk Robbie Williams will be following in Rod Stewart and Boy George's footsteps by hitting London's West End with a musical based on his life.

The RADIO singer wants the stage show to capture his beginnings in England's Stoke area, through to his days in boyband Take That and his subsequent battle with alcohol and drugs.

A source says, "ROBBIE THE MUSICAL could be a winner in about 2020 - but if he doesn't want to be mercilessly ribbed by others in the pop industry, he should not even think about it. Musicals are fantastic fun but I'm afraid they are not cool."
