Williams gets cheeky on X Factor?

Robbie Williams shocked X Factor contestants when he wore just strategically placed palm leaves to make his entrance as a guest coach on the show, according to reports.

Take That bandmate Gary Barlow - who the Angels singer was helping whittle down hopefuls for the boys category - was also stunned by the naked prank, which was Robbie's wife's idea, The Sun said.

A source revealed: "It was hilarious. Gary, the contestants and crew were stunned. Robbie just stood there stark naked apart from these tiny leaves."

Robbie stripped on the balcony of a Los Angeles house rented for X Factor filming, after his wife Ayda remembered Sinitta pulling a similar stunt.

The prank, in which Robbie wore 'naked underwear' to hide his private parts from the camera, will be screened on the ITV1 show in a fortnight.

An X Factor spokeswoman told the newspaper: "Robbie clearly had nothing to hide from the hopefuls."
