Ayda Field reveals Robbie Williams had the testosterone levels of an '80-year-old man' until hormone injections changed his life and freed him from depression

He previously revealed in 2011 that he had resorted to injecting himself with a hormone to boost his sex drive.

And now Robbie Williams' wife Ayda Field has confessed on Monday's Loose Women that the pop star has a new 'lease of life' and feels freed from depression since taking testosterone injections.

The 44-year-old superstar was told by doctors when he was in his 30s that his levels of the male sex hormone were equivalent to those of an '80-year-old man' after he sought medical help for his depression.

The Angel singer was put on a course of testosterone injections to provide him with a normal level of the hormone, and Ayda says the medication transformed her husband's life.

Speaking on ITV lunchtime stalwart, she said: 'Robbie suffered with low testosterone, and for some men it means a loss of libido, but it was nothing to do with that for him. 

'He had lethargy and depression. He actually didn't know, and we got his blood panels done and he they said he had the testosterone of an 80-year-old man. 

'He was in his 30s at the time. I think he was surprised ... The minute he took the testosterone he felt as though he had a new lease on life, he could do things, he was happy, he was motivated and it had nothing to do with getting big muscles.'

Ayda, who has two children, daughter Teddy, admits she was worried that Robbie might have felt emasculated by the diagnosis, but when he decided to go public with it she was super proud of him for being so honest with his fans.

She said: 'It was probably a bit emasculating but I didn't really want to circle on that, I didn't want to go, "Do you feel like less of a man?" Look, why should a man in his 30s have the testosterone levels of an 80-year-old man?

'There's this thing with men where they’re not allowed to talk about these things, I'm so proud of him because he's always so open about his struggles.' 

Speaking about his struggles in 2011, the Stoke-On-Trent star said he had testosterone jabs twice a week after blood tests showed he had levels as low as a 100-year-old.

Robbie said he initially consulted doctors about getting Human Growth Hormone – popular with older men looking to retain a youthful appearance.

'To cut a long story short I went to get some HGH,' he told Esquire Magazine. 'It’s what all the old fellas are on out there in LA that’s making them look 40 instead of 60. It’s improving their health, their memory, their hair, skin.

'Could give you cancer. I weighed that up. Thought I’d have it anyway. Went to see a Hollywood doctor. Had my blood tests. Went back. He said, "You don’t need HGH. You’ve got the testosterone of a 100-year-old man."

'And then everything made sense. It was kind of an epiphany that day. It has changed my life. I feel I’m getting a second wind.'

Testosterone is responsible for maintaining healthy mood, energy levels and fertility.

The injections, which cost around £150 a month, have been linked with side-effects including prostate and colon cancer.

As well as to improve his sex drive, he was having the injections to combat extreme lethargy.
