But the 48-year-old revealed he was overcome with shyness  around the Can’t Get You Out of My Head singer, now 54. 

DJ Scott Mills asked him on Radio 2 show My Life Thru A Lens: “You and Kylie? What was going on there?” 

Robbie, now a married dad of four, replied: “Not as much as I wanted to be unfortunately.

“Messed that up […] by being 13 whenever I was around her. It was like the girl from the year above me. ‘I don’t know how to speak to you!’ But she’s my crush, my crush of all crushes.”

Robbie also recalled sensationally quitting Take That in 1995   during their world tour. 

He said: “I think that I was in the middle of a nervous breakdown, my first of many.”

Robbie, who was 16 when he joined Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald, added: “It felt like I was in some sort of burning building and I needed to get out. 

“That’s how it felt at the time. And then I was like, ‘OK, I’ll do this tour and then I’ll leave.’ And they actually went, ‘Actually, if you’re going to leave, can you go now’?’’

Robbie went solo a year later.  Asked if there was a chart rivalry with Gary, he said: “I made sure there was. Because that’s what the 90s was about.

“This is what was happening in my camp – I say my camp, I mean my head. It’s like wrestling or boxing.”

He added: “Unfortunately Gary didn’t feel the same way and he didn’t get a kick from it, because he was a well-rounded grown-up.”

Angels star Robbie, who has battled drink and drug addictions, admits he still thinks about what may have been if his solo career had flopped.  

Now married for 12 years to Ayda Field, 43, he said: “It actually scares me to think of where I would’ve gone and what I would’ve become and how I would’ve dealt and managed with my best years being behind me already at 21.  That’s terrifying.”
