Robbie Williams Worries About Father's Parkinson's Diagnosis Amid Coronavirus Lockdown

"My dad has got Parkinson's, my mother-in-law, who I love dearly, has got a very big illness. We can't get to them. My dad is thousands of miles away." "My mum is just a year short of 80 and she's in isolation and I can see the things whirling in her mind." Robbie fears all the worry and anxiety will have an impact on his own mental health, but insists he's not the man he once was when it comes to dealing with drama, adding, "I noticed at the start of the lockdown that I was going into fear. But the difference between me now and the person I used to be... I saw it, thought, 'That's interesting, tomorrow will be different' - and it was."
