Robbie Williams plans to get married on Valentine's Day (14.02.10).

The 'Bodies' singer only got engaged last week but is desperate to make Ayda Field - who he has been dating for around three years - his wife, and has earmarked the romantic day as a possible wedding date.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Robbie doesn't want to have a long, drawn-out engagement. When he gets something in his head, there's no stopping him. He's asked all his friends and family to keep the entire week free leading up to February 14, so they can have a week-long celebration before Valentine's Day."

The 35-year-old star is hoping to whisk loved-ones over to Santa Barbara, California, for the ceremony and he has already looked around two prospective venues.

The nuptials are set to be a star-studded event, with his former Take That bandmates Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Jason Orange and other celebrity pals set to attend.

The source added: "He has asked best friend Jonathan Wilkes to be best man and it's likely Take That will perform."

Lady Gaga's extravagant show

Lady Gaga splashed out £52,000 on the huge bathtub used for her performance on 'The X Factor' last year and has already overspent by £2 million on her US tour.

Lady Gaga spent £52,000 on a bath tub.

The 'Bad Romance' singer - who describes her stage show as "ostentatious and over-the-top" - is making a heavy loss every night she performs on the North American leg of her 'Monster Ball Tour, even though every concert is sold out, which has so far overspent by £2 million.

The massive costs have been run up by her elaborate stage design, costumes and props, including the giant bath she used while making a promotional appearance on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor'.

A source said: "The concerts are losing money hand over fist because they've spent a fortune on pricey costumes, technical equipment and elaborate set designs. She spent £500,000 on one stage alone.

"But Lady Gaga gets what Lady Gaga wants. Her wardrobe is huge and she wants to shock - and that costs serious money."

According to her spokesman, the 23-year-old star just "doesn't care" about the financial side of things.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I can't comment on figures but it wouldn't be a surprise. Gaga puts everything into her live shows. I wouldn't want to be her accountant."

While she has already overspent massively, Lady Gaga's bills are expected to soar significantly again as she recently revealed she is planning a completely different set for the European part of her tour.

She said: "For the next version of the 'Monster Ball', which is going to be in February when I begin in the UK with my arena tour, I'm throwing out the stage. My team thinks I'm completely psychotic. But I don't f***ing care what they think.

"Just to give you an idea, the stage is about four times the size of the one we're on now and conceptually, it's completely different. One thing that has been lost over the past 10-15 years, in pop music, is the idea of showbiz. And this is definitely going to bring that back."
