'Bodies' singer Robbie Williams is convinced his £7 million English mansion is inhabited by the ghost of King Henry VIII's sixth and final wife
Robbie Williams is being haunted by the ghost of King Henry VIII's last wife.
The 'Bodies' singer is convinced the £7 million mansion he shares with his girlfriend Ayda Field is inhabited by the spirit of Catherine Parr, the infamous British monarch's sixth and final spouse.
But while he often "feels the presence" of Catherine - who once lived on the estate in Wiltshire, South West England - the 35-year-old singer is never frightened.
He explained: "I think there are ghosts. I haven't seen or heard anything. I've definitely felt something but it's not scary. I'm very, very pleased to say.
"It's Catherine's Parr's old house. In fact, we're actually not in the old house, we're in her barn."
Robbie and Ayda moved from Los Angeles to Britain earlier this year to prepare for his musical comeback.
The former Take That star is enjoying his new lifestyle, but admits he wouldn't have ever imagined himself living in the countryside a few years ago.
Robbie said: "I can't even believe that a 35-year old me has bought a 500-year-old place. Because at 26 or 27 there's no way that I would have chosen to be there or go anywhere near it.
"But it's lovely and the people have been great with us."
It's not the first time Robbie's house has been linked to paranormal activity.
The star reportedly purchased the property because it is crossed with 'ley lines' - invisible energy routes believed to attract aliens.
Robbie is "obsessed" with extra-terrestrials, and claims to have seen three UFOs during his lifetime.
