Speaking of the house Robbie explained: ‘Instantly I picked up on it being weird and dark and having an energy. The first time it manifested itself as something physical the ghetto blaster came on.

‘I was doing a lot of coke at the time. I would be in the house but hear footsteps go up the stairs. It got progressively worse. She (ex-girlfriend) thought it was her granddad.

‘I would get in the car and whatever it was would jump in the backseat. Two months in, I couldn’t deal with it any more. I thought if this stays with me I was going to commit suicide.’

Admitting that he was at the end of his tether, Robbie explained: ‘I got up one day, and there was a dark mist at the end of my bed. I was too scared to go and brush my teeth as I would have to walk through this mist.

‘I just said to my girlfriend at the time “I am going now, are you going to come with me?”‘

Robbie continued: ‘We went to the Swiss Cottage Marriott hotel. I was speaking to my ANR guy, I was explaining to him about what had happened and I said, rather dramatically, if it had stayed with me I would have had to kill myself.’

He then explained that he later found out the house was built atop a Black Death burial site. 

In a previous 2016 interview, Robbie’s wife Ayda also explained that he was on the brink of suicide during the height of his fame.

Speaking on Loose Women, the actress explained: ‘There was a moment in his (Robbie’s) life when he thought life would end and he couldn’t exist any further.

‘There is a way to muddle through it and come to the other side. It just takes a lot of strength,’ she stated. 

Meanwhile, in the podcast interview, Robbie also explained in the interview this his children were terrified while living in a house in Wiltshire. 

‘I used to speak to my daughter Teddy, 6, giving her a snuggle before bed and I would be like: “Can you remember what happened in mummy’s tummy?” But she doesn’t remember what happened before she arrived here.

‘We have got this house that is a thousand years old, in Wiltshire. Teddy’s room in particular is weird. We have moved her out of it now,’ he explained.
