Robbie Williams will go all-out this Christmas with a special seasonal show.

The singer, who has already announced the release of a festive album featuring heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury, is set to play a one-off concert during the holiday period.

It’s Not The Robbie Williams Christmas Show will air on ITV in December, and producers have hailed the star as “one of the greatest entertainers of the age”.

He will play the Alexandra Palace in London, offering an evening of music and entertainment which will be filmed for TV.

Williams said: “I’m so excited to be working with ITV on this very special programme. I’ll be bringing new songs from my Christmas album, The Christmas Present, as well as the classic hits, to this beautiful and iconic venue.”
