Robbie Williams wants to propose to his girlfriend.

The ‘Bodies’ singer admitted he is gathering the courage to ask actress Ayda Field - who he has been dating since January 2007 - to be his wife.

When asked by if he plans to marry Ayda, Robbie replied: “I might be. It could be on the cards… yeah.”

His answer was met with cheers from the audience, to which the singer replied: “You’re happy that I’m happy, right?”

While Robbie’s relationship with Ayda is going well, he is also delighted to have rekindled his friendship with former Take That bandmates Gary Barlow - with whom he was locked in a bitter feud with after departing the group in 1995 - Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald.

He said: “I’m so glad I have sorted out my relationship with them. We sat down and did all the hard talk straight away and sorted everything out and then it was done.

Gary’s just a very, very well rounded loving man. He’s special and he should be regarded as special in this country.”

The singer also admitted he enjoys thinking back to the band’s early days, despite being unable to remember much of what happened.

He added on UK TV show ‘Loose Women’: “Regarding nostalgia, I can’t remember much. Two trips to rehab will do that.

“But I absolutely embrace those days when it was five mates travelling around the world having a whale of a time and pre-pubescent girls screaming at us. Who have since grown up.”
