Robbie Williams reveals his phone was hacked

Robbie Williams has become the latest celebrity to reveal that his mobile phone was hacked by a tabloid newspaper. The singer made the claim in an Australian TV documentary. Asked if he was worried about it happening again he added: "No, I don't have a phone... I haven't for two and a half years now, for that very reason."

The singer declined to elaborate. It is not known which newspaper is alleged to have been behind the intercept. The News of the World is embroiled in a phone-tapping scandal which is being investigated by Scotland Yard.
