Bum note: Robbie Williams bares his bottom live on Danish TV as Take That bandmates look on laughing


Just peachy: Robbie Williams flashes his derriere on Danish TV as Take That bandmate Mark Owen looks on laughing

He's bared his soul in records, documentaries and biographies and even stripped for one of his videos - and it seems Robbie Williams just can't help over-sharing.

The cheeky Take That singer bared his bottom live on Danish television last night as bandmate Mark Owen looked on and cracked up.

The butt of many jokes over the years, Take That have now however been crowned king man band with the rejoining of William - but this kind of barefaced behaviour could be seen by some as below the belt.

Robbie, 36, - and some would argue old enough to know better - showed off his hairy bum as the band played Tivoili amusement park in Copenhagen.

Their performance of current single The Flood was being filmed by show 'TV2 Good Evening Denmark'.

The You Know Me singer has never been shy of showing off his body however. As well as stripping for the Rock DJ promo, Chris Heath revealed in Feel, his authorised book about the star, that he recorded much of his solo material in the nude.

Whether or not he got naked while back in the studio with Take That has yet to be revealed however.

Nude recordings or not, Robbie rejoining has helped Take That achieve the fastest-selling record in 13 years with new album Progress, shifting a staggering 235,000 copies on their first day of sales.

The band are currently promoting it across Scandinavia and last week, were spotted indulging in a snowball fight outside their hotel in Stockholm, Sweden.

And as well as the success of the LP, tickets for their upcoming tour sold out in a matter of hours.

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot said: 'This is phenomenal achievement from an already phenomenally successful band.'

Good job they've always had naked ambition...
