Robbie Williams, the 'singer' who performed with pop supergroup, Take That, has been taken hostage in a garden shed in Cheetham Hill, Manchester.
The 'singer', who walked out on Take That in 1995, was taken hostage after he met with Take That with a view to making another Take That album. Ransom details are being analysed by the police, but are not thought to include money.
The shed belongs to one Gary Barlow, the lead singer with Take That, and it isn't very big. Williams is believed to be tied up, with some tape placed over his mouth so that he can't sing.
A note released this morning from the garden shed, read:
"I am being held against my will, but am being treated with the respect I, as a superstar, rightly deserve. I am receiving food and water, but am worried about my future. The fact that part of my future includes a name from my past makes it all the more poignant for me."
Police say they don't know what Williams is talking about, but it could be just another publicity stunt.
