Robbie Williams scared by parents evening

Robbie Williams skipped daughter Theodora's parents evening because it "scares" him.

The former Take That star - who has two-year-old daughter Theodora "Teddy" Rose and 10-month-old son Charlton - admitted he can't stand most people and was so terrified of going in a room with lots of mums and dads that he would've needed to take anxiety disorder drug Valium, but he opted for telling a white lie saying he was in the studio.

He said: "I don't like that many people. It's rare I get into the room and go, 'Yeah, I like that person and that person,' out of 5,000 people, let alone being thrown into a room full of parents.

"That scares me. There was a parent evening for the nursery Teddy goes to and it filled me full of fear.

The 41-year-old 'Candy' hitmaker also thinks it pointless going to parents evening because his daughter is only two-years-old.

He told the Mirror newspaper: "It was either take a Valium and go or pretend I've got to be in the studio... and that gets me out of everything.

"So I pretended I was in the studio. What are we going to talk about? Teddy isn't even three. I don't know what we were supposed to talk about."

Robbie also shared that his "little girl" is a performer just like him and loves to sing and dance and "melts [his] heart".

He added: "I'm bowled over. I'm able to have chats now with my little girl. She sings and she dances and she melts my heart. I'm in love."
