Murderer Rosemary West hums along to the boys' hits

Take That have acquired some pretty devoted fans over the years.

Simon Cowell rated Gary Barlow so much that he gave him a job as an X Factor judge.

‘You know who else is a Take That fan?’ says Robbie Williams, 38, ‘Rose West.

‘Somebody sent me a link. Rose West is in jail, humming along to Take That songs.’

Serial killer Rosemary West – who in 1995 was convicted of murdering 10 young women – likes to listen to the boy band’s hits in her jail cell.

Robbie is ‘proud’ Take That are being played in HM Prison Low Newton and of all the guys’ achievements, though he left the group in 1995, before rejoining in 2010.

It was a big year for him as he also marriedl wife Ayda Field, 32, in August.

‘Things have never looked so up,’ Robbie tells The Times Magazine.

‘There’s contentment, and… just recording a new [solo] album.

‘And knowing that it’s really strong. And I’ve got a few other things on the horizon.

‘Things feel very complete. Things feel very do-able.’
