Robbie Williams has revealed the true extent of his drug abuse, explaining that he was snorting so much cocaine in the mid-90s he lost feeling in his left arm.

In fact, the former Take That member confessed that he is lucky to be alive after dabbling with a cocktail of class As. Naughty!

"I was taking a whole cocktail of drugs. My left arm went numb I was taking so much cocaine," he told Daily Mail’s Weekender.

"I managed to escape by the skin of my teeth and I'm lucky. I was days away from dying quite a few times on all manner of substances."

Robbie, 39, also compared himself to Hollywood actor Heath Ledger, who died in 2008 from an accidental overdose.

He said: “There could easily have been a Heath Ledger scenario. Unfortunately I've been in a place where I didn't care if I was on the planet or not. I do care now."

That’s probably down to his wife Ayda Field, who he married in 2010, and their young daughter Teddy.

It’s not the first time Robbie’s opened up about his drug use, even revealing he took heroin at the height of his drug addiction.
