The 'Candy' singer praises the strength of his Take That band mate following recent personal tragedy.

Robbie Williams has shown support to his good friend and Take That bandmate Gary Barlow after the X Factor judge lost his baby recently.

The 'Greatest Day' singer's baby girl was delivered stillborn last month and he has received thousands of messages from fans and celebrities alike since the tragic news.

Speaking about the ordeal, Robbie admitted he had yet to talk in detail to Gary but praised his underlying strength.

"You know, Gaz is the most solid man I know, way more solid than me," he told The Sun. "He has the ability to put things in compartments. But this is the most testing thing he’s ever had to go through, I'.m sure."

He continued: "It's just one of those things where we'll see how it goes when I see him, but it's obviously a very, very sad time for both him, Dawn and the kids."

Robbie is currently expecting his first child with wife Ayda and said he will take the time to sit down with Gary when he is ready.

"It's the heaviest, heaviest thing, and, like I say, Gaz is so together," he said. "We'll sit down and have a proper chat at some point but so far it hasn’t happened." 

Gary took the time to thank his fans for their "lovely messages" for their support after his tragedy.

Meanwhile, the singer was recently spotted alongside Cheryl Cole as she made her return to the X Factor as one of his mentors for the show.

She admitted that her return to the music reality series was for Gary and not Simon Cowell.

Robbie also recently unveiled his new single 'Candy' which will be released on 28th October with new album 'Take The Crown' following on 5th November.
