Robbie Williams brightened up the day, quite literally, when he turned on the Christmas lights at Loose Women this week. The Let Me Entertain You hitmaker paid a special trip to wife Ayda Field's work to do the honours and kickstart the festive season. After a chorus of carols being sung by workers, Robbie – who was dressed in a black jacket embellished with white flowers, teamed with black trousers – told the crowd that Christmas had official started after switching on the fairy lights on the tree. Ayda – who was dressed in a co-ordinating ensemble to her husband – cheered on in the background.
The footage was shared on Christine Lampard's Instagram stories on Tuesday, and it looks like Robbie's trip to the office was quite the success. The TV host shared a photo of her with Robbie and Ayda during the event. Robbie also appeared on Tuesday's Loose Women as a panellist, joining Ayda, Christine, Janet Street-Porter and Nadia Sawala.
