Williams tells of forgotten cameras

Take That star Robbie Williams has revealed he once installed TV cameras around his bedroom to stream his antics on the internet - then forgot they were there.
The singer said he only remembered they were there when he noticed a recording light on one of the cameras to show it was relaying pictures.
Williams, appearing on Radio 1's breakfast show, said he initially came up with a wheeze to present an online show from his home.
"I had this idea once to put cameras in my bedroom. You know those ideas that you instantly regret and forget about - 'what would be a great is if I put cameras in my bedroom and I did a web-show from my bed'," he said.
"And I put them in and forgot they were there. It was seven days in and I saw this yellow light in the corner and I was like 'this is feeding somewhere, somewhere's picking this up'. Very embarrassing."
Williams left Take That in 1995 after famously loading a car with champagne and heading off to Glastonbury for a "lost weekend" with Oasis's Gallagher brothers.
He has subsequently played the festival as a solo act, but Take That dismissed rumours that they were to play as a band at next year's event.
Williams said: "Definitely not happening. It's muddy and wet and loads of other people on."
