Robbie Williams' dance desperation

Robbie Williams is desperate to compete on a UK TV dancing show.

The 'Angels' singer wants to show off his skills on BBC One programme 'Strictly Come Dancing' - Britain's equivalent of US series 'Dancing With The Stars' - even though he doesn't even know the show's proper title.

He said: "You can expect me on 'Celebrity Come Dancing' towards the end of summer next year."

Robbie - who is rumoured to be reuniting with his former group Take That - has also revealed he decided to move back to the UK from Los Angeles because he misses the miserable weather.

He wrote on his personal website: "It was my recent trip to England that did it. I felt plugged in. Roots! I really miss it.

"For all its c**p weather, I need to be among Brits again. Back in Britain, I listened to the radio in the car, watched what and who was on the TV and then it all came back.

"Ambition that is - I wanted to put an album out the next day."

Robbie is set to go into the studio in January to put the finishing touches on his new album.
