  • Robbie Williams dons pink dress and pigtails for TV comeback

    Robbie Williams has donned a pink dress and pigtails for his big TV comeback but, don’t worry, the singer hasn’t completely lost the plot – it’s all for a special Little Britain sketch.

    Robbie has joined forces with David Walliams and Matt Lucas for two exclusive Little Britain scenes, in aid of Comic Relief, which will be shown on Friday 13 March on BBC One from 7pm.

    The former Take That member plays American Candy Marie-Candy who has a sleepover with Matt Lucas’ character, Ellie Grace.

    Of the part, Robbie said: ‘It’s hard to say no when asked to take part in a Little Britain sketch for Comic Relief. But I have to admit that dressing up as a small American child in a pretty dress made it all the more appealing.’

    David Walliams was thrilled with Robbie’s performance, describing him as ‘absolutely brilliant.’

    ‘He could be a comedian full time if he wanted to,’ he said. ‘And we have found that the best way to tempt him back into the spotlight is by putting him in a dress!’
