Robbie Williams’ dad Pete Conway has been rushed to hospital after “breaking his spine”.

The veteran comedian and entertainer, 72, who lives in Robbie‘s home town, took to his Twitter page to upload a sorry shot showing him in the back of an ambulance.

Another image captured him alongside the paramedics that had helped him.

Pete wrote in his caption: “Yesterday I had a fall and broke a bone in my spine..(yes, it hurts)… and I spent all day today in hospital.

“I’ve had better days.”

Addressing his Parkinson‘s battle – revealed by the Angels singer in 2020 – he added: “#Parkinsons is a nuisance.”

Robbie is currently on tour and will no doubt be concerned about Pete‘s health.

Previously, the Take That singer opened up about his “fear and panic” at being stuck in LA while his father is battling the disorder back in the UK.

Robbie added that his wife Ayda Field‘s mother Gwen is struggling with a “very big illness”, as well as having Parkinson’s and lupus.

He told The Mirror: “We’ve got a lot of family issues right now. My dad has got Parkinson’s, my mother-in-law who I love dearly has got a very big illness. We can’t get to them. My dad is thousands of miles away.”

The singer added: “My mum is just a year short of 80 and she’s in isolation and I can see the things whirling in her mind and her eyes going.”

Robbie – who has a history of anxiety and depression – also discussed the the emotional strain he‘s under.

He said that despite his dad‘s devastating diagnosis, he’s processing his emotions in a healthier way than he was a decade ago.

The X Factor judge explained: “I noticed at the start of the lockdown that I was going into fear. But the difference between me now and the person I used to be… I saw it, thought ‘That’s interesting – tomorrow will be different’. And it was.”

The Take That star and his dad Pete, who is also a singer, have performed together many times onstage.

Robbie previously admitted his fears about his parents in an exclusive interview with The Sun.

He said: “We are incredibly fortunate to be where we are but right now I am also talking for my dad, who is in the bungalow in Stoke-on-Trent and for my mum, who is in a house by herself.

“They’re of that age that is very vulnerable to what is going on, so I am speaking to them on the phone daily.”
