Robbie Williams stuns ‘The X Factor’ wannabes with ‘palm leaf strip act’
London: Robbie Williams left everyone stunned after stripping down in front of ‘The X Factor’ wannabes, covering his tackle with just palm leaves.
The 37-year-old singer enacted the prank as he revealed himself as the guest judge for the eight contestants in the “boys” category, stunning everybody, including the singer’s ‘Take That’ band mate Gary Barlow, who had no idea this was going to happen.
“It was hilarious. Gary, the contestants and crew were stunned,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
“Robbie just stood there stark naked apart from these tiny leaves,” the source stated.
The prank, which was the ‘Old Before I Die’ hitmaker’s wife, Ayda’s idea, took place on the balcony of a Los Angeles house rented for filming the reality talent show.
Williams, however, did wear a “naked underwear” – a skin-tight material that hid a bit of his private bits from the camera.
“Robbie clearly had nothing to hide from the hopefuls,” ‘The X Factor’ spokeswoman said.
