Daddy dread for Robbie

Robbie Williams is scared about becoming a father.

The 'Angels' singer's wife Ayda Field is due to give birth to their first child, a girl, next month and although he can't wait to welcome her into the world, he is very nervous about the responsibilities of parenthood.

He said: "She's in my image, a mini-Robbie. I'm excited but in truth I'm s**tting myself."

The 38-year-old Take That star also admits he has been experiencing food cravings like his pregnant spouse.

He joked: "I'm really craving Minstrels and prawn cocktail crisps."

Earlier this week, Robbie announced the release of a new solo album 'Take The Crown' and admits he is more "energised" about his music career than ever as he has connected with the record in a way he didn't with his most recent releases.

Speaking at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards, where he picked up the Icon Award, he said: "I haven't really been engaged in the past couple of albums but I'm really into this one. It might be because I didn't tour after any of them.

"I'm re-energised. I want to take over the charts and get my crown back."

Robbie's Take That bandmate Gary Barlow also picked up a prize at last night's (04.09.12) ceremony, taking home the Outstanding Achievement accolade.

He said: "Even though you don't do the work specifically to get awards, it's always nice to receive them.

"I've had some fun this year and it's nice to celebrate with some good friends tonight."

Other winners at the event included Chris Hemsworth, who took the International Breakthrough prize, Lana Del Rey, who got the Woman of the Year accolade, and Sacha Baron Cohen, who won Comedian of the Year.
