Robbie Williams is reportedly quarantining in the Caribbean after testing positive for coronavirus while on holiday with his family.

The former Take That star, 46, flew to St Barts with wife Ayda and their four children on December 28.

A source told The Sun : "Robbie’s been fairly sick.

"He’s confined to the villa where he is staying with his family. It’s not exactly the worst place in the world to be quarantined, although he cannot go to the beach. He will have to remain in quarantine for up to 14 days."

It's said that the singer had jetted off for a new year getaway but has been forced to self-isolate in his £106,000-a-week villa following his diagnosis with Covid-19.

He had been pictured earlier this month heading out on the island for a boat trip and wearing a face mask in a bid to protect himself and others amid the pandemic.

The star had been in London earlier in the month for an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show before flying out to St Barts with Loose Women star Ayda, 41, and their kids Teddy, eight, Charlton, six, Colette, two, and Beau, one.

Robbie had said last year that he was living up a mountain to avoid catching Covid as the pandemic raged across the world.

He told the BBC: "I’m somewhere in Switzerland up a mountain. I’m a bit neurotic and I thought, 'Where can I place myself where it won’t get me?'"

He added: "That’s social distancing in the extreme isn’t it?"

Robbie recently revealed that he could have faced death if he hadn't changed his seafood-filled diet.

He opened up about the moment he had high levels of mercury poisoning in his body and how he could have "dropped dead".

Robbie said he was tucking into octopus, squid and tuna so much that he was putting himself at risk and that it was only a routine blood test that uncovered the issue.

The former X Factor judge said on Radio X: "I was eating fish twice a day and I’ve got the highest mercury poisoning the doctor has ever seen.

"Do you know what I thought when I heard that? 'I’ve won!' That’s how my ego works, 'I’ve got the highest…did you say the highest? Thank you'. I literally won the mercury award."

The Mirror has contacted Robbie's representatives for comment.
