Robbie Williams wants to star in his own cookery show.

The Angels singer has become a keen chef after taking private cooking lessons and wants to show off his culinary skills with a TV programme and accompanying book.

A source said: “He has an urge to host his own cookery show and bring out a book with it.”

However, friends are not convinced the star’s calorie-laden menu will offer enough variety for a whole series.

The source added to The Sun: “The problem is, Robbie isn’t exactly the healthiest eater on the planet. Who needs lessons in how to cook burgers and fries? That’s about all he’s interested in.”

It was recently reported Robbie and his actor friend Max Beesley are set to star on a celebrity version of hit UK show Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. If the project goes ahead, the pair will work in a failing restaurant and attempt to turn things round under chef Gordon Ramsay’s ever-watchful eye.

Max said: “There are plans for me and Robbie to work together. We might do a Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares special. I’m a big foodie so I said I wouldn’t mind one of Gordon’s tongue-lashings.”
