Wading into the Brexit furore, the 44-year-old X-Factor judge did not reveal which way he voted in the 2016 referendum but admitted he didn’t want the UK to be “out of Europe” after a fan begged Britain to stay in the EU. The 44-year-old said: “We had a vote and they said we wanted to leave, so if there is another vote and they go ‘well actually, let’s have another go’ – that’s not democracy is it?” The singer revealed his pro-Europe angling in a candid Instagram Live session with fans.
He read out a message from one fan who wrote: “I don’t want England to be out of Europe that’s s***.”
The Angels singer replied: “Neither do I but don’t tell anyone, I’ll get in trouble for that.
“But I know very little about lots of things… I know very little about most things and it is so confusing.”
Robbie Williams reveals he does NOT want UK to leave EU
Robbie has tried to stay out of the Brexit debate officially and last year he did not sign an open letter to Theresa May from UK musicians urging the Prime Minister to stop Brexit amid fears it could damage Britain’s music industry.
The letter was organised by Irish singer and charity campaigner Sir Bob Geldof and signed by British posters Ed Sheehan, Rita Ora, Sting and Queen drummer Roger Taylor.
The letter to Number 10 read: We dominate the market and our bands, singers, musicians, writers, producers and engineers work all over Europe and the world and in turn, Europe and the world come to us.
“Why? Because we are brilliant at it.
“[Our music] reaches out, all inclusive, and embraces anyone and everyone.
“And that truly is what Britain is.”
Sir Bob Geldof blasts ‘inept’ British Government over Brexit
Activist Bob Geldof has been extremely vocal about Brexit, joining numerous other celebrities including actor Sir Patrick Stewart and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker in saying Britain should stay in the EU.
Last month the Irish rocker slammed Brussels as “not fit for purpose” but said Brexit was a “serious mistake”.
Mr Geldof admitted he “completely understands” why people voted to leave the EU but “passionately against” the result of the 2016 referendum.
