Robbie Williams is moving back to England permanently because he wants his children to have a British education.

The 'Angels' hitmaker plans to leave Los Angeles before his wife Ayda Field gives birth to their second child because he wants to give his 20-month-old daughter Teddy and her future sibling a British education.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I love LA. The people and the weather are great but it's not England. It can't offer the same. Things change when you're a dad - there are people to look after who are more important than yourself.

"I want Teddy and the new baby, whatever it may be, to be educated in England."

The former Take That star has just bought a £2.5 million "ruddy big house" in North London, so he joked he has no choice but to relocate back across the Atlantic permanently.

Robbie added: "Teddy is already surrounded by English people so she's bound to have an accent anyway.

"But that's not the point - we want to educate her in London. We've just bought a ruddy big house so we had better be coming back!"

The 40-year-old star claims becoming a father has made him rethink his lifestyle choices and eat healthily so he can keep up with his baby daughter.

He enthused: "I look after myself now - I have to. Not only for my appearance but I have to be fit for on the road and for running around after Teddy."
