Robbie Williams performs with naked models

Los Angeles: Singer Robbie Williams staged a saucy performance as he wrapped his arm around a topless dancer during a shoot of the Italian `X Factor`.

The "Take That" was performing new single "Candy" when he was joined by a group of naked models, sporting only skin-coloured thongs. Only strategically placed arms covered their modesty, reports

However, the 38-year-old seemed unfazed.

Williams dressed in a grey shirt and waistcoat, looked like he has piled on some pounds.

He recently became father to one-month-old Theodora Teddy Rose. His wife Ayeda Fields gave birth to Theodora Sep 18.
