Robbie Williams is to have several new streets in Stoke named after his songs.

The singer grew up in the city and will be handed a special 'Robbie Day' to mark his 40th birthday on February 13.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council officials confirmed that the day will include several events and the unveiling of a blue plaque near his former home.

Roads in a new housing estate in Middleport will be called Angels Way, Candy Lane and Supreme Street.

Council leader Mohammed Pervez said Williams was one of Stoke's most famous exports, explaining: "He is a global superstar, but one who has always remembered his roots.


"He is very proud of his connections to Stoke-on-Trent and the celebrations will not only attract people from the city, but from across the country and even further afield."

Williams's former schools, his local club Port Vale and the Donna Louise Children's Hospice he supports will also hold events in the run-up to 'Robbie Day'.

Take That recently strongly hinted that they were back in the recording studio, but it has not been confirmed if Williams will join them again.
