Robbie Williams' jock strap up for sale

Robbie Williams' jockstrap from the Rock DJ video is being auctioned in Australia.

The 40-year-old singer wore the intimate garment during his video for hit single Rock DJ, which was released in 2000 and saw him strip down until he was completely naked. Premiere auction house Leonard Joel in Australia are putting the jockstrap on offer with bids starting at £330, and it is unknown whether it has been washed and cleaned since it was last worn.

Leonard Joel sell a range of famous pieces, such as Beatles merchandise, and it is thought Robbie's offering is one of a kind.

“It’s definitely one of the most unique pieces of music memorabilia which has come up for sale in recent years. Who knows what the buyer will decide to do with it," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

Robbie previously dipped his toe into the world of fashion with his own menswear label Farrell. He launched the line in September 2011 and named it after his grandfather Jack Farrell, giving it the clothing the motto 'Wear it in, wear it out'. Pieces in the collection included cropped coats to smart shirts.

However, the range sadly went into liquidation last October after failing to build success. Speaking at the time Robbie took the time to share how grateful he was to have the opportunity to work with Farrell's creative director and designer Ben Dickens.

"The support of the men's press and retailers internationally since we started has been incredible and I want to thank them," he said. "I have also been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the talented Ben Dickens and will miss creating and working with and wish him every luck for the future."
