Robbie Williams reportedly has a £1.75 million home he doesn't use.

The 'Candy' hitmaker bought the west London house - previously owned by late filmmaker Michael Winner - in December 2013, but despite it's huge price tag he has preferred to stay in hotels when he has been performing in the capital city of the UK.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "The house has a staff in place ready to welcome anyone who wants to stay there, but Robbie himself has opted for hotels when he's been in London, instead of making the journey out to West London after work commitments in town.

"He bought it for the family and plans to use it one day, but to be in such a big place alone when he's missing them has no appeal.

"He's told all his friends and family they can stay there any time they like, but it's not something he's actually done himself yet. It's just easier to crash in a hotel, not worry about anything and then go on to the next gig or jump on a place to the next country."

Meanwhile, it is said Robbie sees his home as "where his family is", which is currently Los Angeles while his wife Ayda Field is pregnant with their second child.

The source added: "Ayda has her own ideas about what to do with the house and the decor when she arrives back in England for the birth of their second child, so they'll get to it then.

"But without her stamp on it, it doesn't really feel like a home. Home for Robbie is where his family is."
