  • Robbie Williams set to release new album Under The Radar Volume 2 on YouTube

    ROBBIE WILLIAMS has finally got round to using YouTube for the benefit of his music.

    After years trawling the video-sharing site to indulge his UFO obsession, the superstar will release his second album in as many years on there.

    In a BEYONCE-style first for Robbie, he intends to drip-feed each track from Under The Radar Volume 2, which is the follow-up to his 2014 collection of B-sides and rarities, on YouTube.

    It will give him a chance to put out tracks that did not make last year’s No1 album, The Heavy Entertainment Show.

    A source said: “Robbie has the songs recorded and ready to go.

    “The tracklisting for The Heavy Entertainment Show was meticulously picked by him as he wanted it to have a certain sound but he has loads of great music still in the vault.

    “There’s also intriguing stuff left over from previous albums that fans will want to hear.

    “After previously keeping his fans waiting so long for new music he wants to keep them interested.”

    The bold move is a sensible one for Robbie, as it means he i’s staying relevant and keeping up with modern pop stars who are increasingly releasing music online first.

    The traditional three-year album and tour cycle enjoyed by artists down the years is becoming less fashionable, with many now dropping tracks whenever they want.

    Robbie will put his songs on YouTube during his upcoming tour, which kicks off at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester in June.

    So fans will get a taste of the album before the complete package at Christmas.

    Once the tour is wrapped and he’s had a rest, Robbie is then likely to once again join forces with TAKE THAT for their special 25th anniversary Greatest Hits album.

    The band will then take the collection on the road in 2018, which GARY BARLOW believes will be their biggest ever tour.

    Robbie will have a lot of fun looking back at the highlights on YouTube.

  • Who you gonna call? Keith Lemon, Paddy McGuinness and Robbie Williams suit up for Ghostbusters parody

    Not sure we'd trust them to save the world, to be honest.



    Move over Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and co, there's a new crew in town.

    Nope, Hollywood hasn't hit the reboot button on the Ghostbusters franchise after last year's film didn't do as well as expected.

    Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness have joined forces with 'Rudebox' hitmaker Robbie Williams to parody the iconic series for The Keith and Paddy Picture Show.

    The show sees Keith and Paddy recreate their favourite films, Be Kind Rewind-style, with a host of celebrity guests.

    Elsewhere in the series, the duo parody the Rocky films with the help of Anna Friel as Adrian, Marvin Humes as Apollo Creed and, errrm, Andi Peters as Mr T.

    There's also another recreation of the famous Dirty Dancing lift moment, with Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Hynes, Larry Lamb and John Barrowman involved.

    The duo also take on Jaws with a particularly fishy parody that stars DCI Banks' Stephen Tompkinson.

    Returning to the actual Ghostbusters franchise, it looks like there are going to be a whole host of movies on the way - according to the original's director Ivan Reitman at least.

    We're not sure what the studio has in mind, except for an animated series called Ghostbusters: Ecto Force that will begin in 2018, which may have a theatrical film attached to it.

    Maybe they'll give Keith, Paddy and Robbie some cameos.

    The Keith and Paddy Picture Show will air on ITV in April.

  • Ed Sheeran and Robbie Williams are neighbors

    Ed Sheeran and Robbie Williams are neighbors.

    The 26-year-old singer songwriter has revealed his London home is "oddly" situated next door to the Take That band member, who lives there with his wife Ayda Field and their children Theodora, four, and two year-old Charlton, and he regularly pops over with an apple pie to have a catch up with the 43-year-old musician.

    Speaking to KISS FM, the 'Shape of You' hitmaker said: "Oddly enough, where I live in London, Robbie is there. We're neighbors the whole time. So I'll just, I'll pop round and bring an apple pie and say, 'How's the Missus?' He'll be like, 'Good. How's the Missus with you?' And it will be like, 'Right, shall we get a few jars?'"

    And the flame-haired vocalist is desperate to collaborate with the dark-haired rocker on a track in the future, because he has always been a fan of Robbie's songs and his 1997 debut solo album 'Life Thru a Lens' was the first album he ever owned.

    He explained: "I would do a song with Robbie, because 'Life thru a Lens' was the first album I ever got given by my aunt when I was six."

    However, Robbie didn't like hearing about how Ed's music collection started and the age in which he had his own copy because it made him feel old.

    Ed continued: "I told him that and he didn't like that because I was six."

    Meanwhile, the 'ABC' vocalist - who is currently dating Cherry Seaborn - has revealed Kanye West inspired him to include flamethrowers in his 2017 BRIT Awards performance.

    Speaking about the star studded bash, which saw him joined on stage by rapper Stormzy, he said: "I saw Kanye's performance a couple of years ago and I remember seeing him using flamethrowers and I was like, 'I wish I could use flame throwers.' So they were like, 'What do you want to do for your Brits performance this year?' And I was like, 'Flame throwers.'"

  • Ant & Dec tease Robbie Williams and Dermot O'Leary pranks on Saturday Night Takeaway and other goodies

    Saturday Night Takeaway is almost back for its 14th series, and from what Ant & Dec have told us, it's bound to be its best yet.

    Not only will a host of celebrities appear in 'The Missing Crown Jewels', a follow-up to last year's 'Who Shot Simon Cowell?' serial, and Gogglebox favourite Scarlett Moffatt will be their new partner-in-crime for the series, but the boys have lined up some serious star pedigree for their collection of stunts and pranks.


    Poor Dermot O'Leary will be put through 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Out of Me Ear' - the first to take place in public - while Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field will also get the same embarrassing treatment.

    "We've got Robbie and Ayda doing a 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Out of Me Ear'," Dec told Digital Spy and other press.

    Ant explained: "They bought a pub, and they want to have a party so we get party planners round, and we're in their ear all the way through the interview process. It's random stuff like we bring out two ferrets and Rob has to walk the ferrets, and we named them after members of Take That. We know how far to push Rob."



    "Which is quite far," Dec added. "We got as far as him on the toilet talking to the party planner, so that's quite fun!"

    On Dermot's task, Ant said: "It's the first time we've done anything big like that with Dermot, isn't it?"

    Dec replied: "And the first time we've done an 'In Your Ear' in a public space. In the middle of a supermarket, which was hilarious." Ant: "At first he's just a bit nice, isn't he? So we're like 'go and nick something out of that basket'. And he wouldn't do it!"

    Dec: "He's sweating! Dermot's so nice to everybody." Ant: "He's going 'really? This woman?'" Dec: "Yep, Dermot, you've promised you'd do everything. He's absolutely sweating. At the end of it he went round and had to apologise to everybody and kind of helped everyone clear up and stuff."

    Ant added: "Every person I said 'ask if you can have a bite out of their sandwich'. And everyone said no until this one woman with this kind of moistest awful-looking tuna melt sandwich and she went 'yeah, go on then!' And you could see his face thinking 'ah ffff...' He did it though! Fair play. I loved doing that with him."

    Having acted in projects such as SM:TV Live skit Chums, one-off movie Alien Autopsy and the 2002 Likely Lads remake, Ant & Dec admitted they have enjoyed bringing back some comedy acting in their Takeaway serials.

    Ant said: "It's kind of sparked something – we'd like to do more stuff in that vein in the future. Not necessarily in the immediate future, but it reminded us of Byker Grove and early days of being actors. It's a different discipline which is really enjoyable – very different, but still as enjoyable. So I think we might look at trying to do more bits like that."

    Dec added: "And also something in the vein of the 'Who Shot' and 'Missing Crown Jewels', which is quite silly. I don't want to suddenly turn up as a detective on Silent Witness."

    Could we ever see them do another Morecambe & Wise-style Christmas special?

    "Yeah, funnily enough, yeah," Ant said. "We've talked a lot…We done one years ago. We did an Ant and Dec Christmas Show about eight years ago now and they still repeat it on ITV2. We love doing that, so that is something we might get to do in the future."

    Dec said: "We've talked about it for a few years but we haven't had the chance with Text Santa because we've always been a part of Text Santa as well so just we haven't had time to do it. But now that Text Santa won't be around Christmas anymore, there might be more of a chance to do that. So definitely watch this space."

  • Robbie Williams’ BRIT Awards 2017 performance marred by nudity and technical problems

    Robbie Williams‘s Brit Awards performance was hampered by technical problems and a wardrobe malfunction last night (February 22).

    Two of his dancers fell over while he was in the middle of his medley of ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’, ‘Love My Life’ and ‘Mixed Signals’ and one them saw her low-cut top slip down by accident.

    During ‘Feel’, his performance was also muted for several seconds. You can watch footage below.

    On the night, Williams picked up the Global Icon Award, which was handed to David Bowie posthumously last year.


    When asked by NME about what it felt like to be the next recipient, Williams replied: “It depends who they give it to next. Maybe I’m just devaluing the brand. Maybe it’s like the heavy descent. Maybe it’s S Club 7 next. I don’t know.


    “Look, it was a cracking bit of promo, I’m glad they gave it to me. But there’s so much in my career where I look into the abyss and the abyss looks back and goes: ‘I don’t know, I don’t have a fucking clue’.”

    Williams added: “How have I got 18 Brits and Paul McCartney hasn’t? Something weird has happened. It’s like Leicester winning the league and Trump being president. Me having 18 Brits – it’s like there’s a glitch in the Matrix. But, you know I’m not going to give them back and I’m glad it’s happened to me.”

    Also performing on the night were Katy PerryEd Sheeran and SkeptaThe 1975,  and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who gave a special tribute to George Michael.

    The big winners on the night were Bowie, who won Best British Album for ‘Blackstar’ and was named Best British Male Solo Artist, The 1975 who won Best British Group, Rag N’ Bone Man who won Best British Breakthrough Act and Adele who won the Global Success Award.
