Description

Christmas is coming whether 2020 likes it or not, and Robbie and Ayda are embracing all of that, from a safe, social distance... while wearing a mask. There’s that tricky Christmas spirit to find, a narrator friend in Noddy Holder, a new festive tune to discuss, and a chance to hear from some of those who really deserve celebrating.

Frankly you never know what you’ll get when you eavesdrop on life with the Williamses, but it’s often unexpected, and always entertaining, so join us!

Christmas, however it happens, means family for Robbie and Ayda as they welcome Grampy Pete back to the podcast - complete with his (interesting) Christmas tree. The family might be scattered this year but there will still be matching PJs. Plus Robbie prods the festive song brain of his narrator Noddy Holder to hear first-hand what it’s like to have a Christmas catchphrase and why you must believe in yourself... as well as Santa.
The 2020 version of Christmas won’t be the same but Robbie and Ayda argue that there’s still plenty that’s worth celebrating! So, they head to Stoke, virtually, to hear first-hand from some of those who’ve gone above and beyond to help others this year. There’s also the matter of Robbie’s new festive single to discuss - and crucially - who came up with the idea first... which may be the first minor family argument we’ve heard this Christmas-time. Plus, there’s a new narrator in town as Noddy Holder gets in on the festivities and keeps the Christmas peace.
Watch out, they’re back! And as this two-part special suggests, you really can’t hold back the Christmas festivities, or Robbie and Ayda when there’s festive chat to be had. Dropping into your feed more brightly than Rudolph’s red nose.
The Upside Of Masks

The Upside Of Masks

Like the rest of us, Robbie and Ayda are readjusting to life after staying at home for so long, and are masked-up and raring to go. The couple share their hopes for getting back to work and what they want to hold on to as precious learnings from lockdown. There are big plans for a move into TV and smaller plans to keep enjoying walks, where Robbie can finally go unnoticed thanks to a face mask.

Take That take centre stage... well, centre screen to be precise as Robbie and Ayda discuss working from home. Like many of us, they've been doing their own work from home. Robbie has performed with his 'Take That Brothers' and Ayda has been recording episodes of her (other!) podcast. There's also some very interesting Robbie music news on the horizon...

This week we put the podcast in YOUR hands! Robbie and Ayda went live on Instagram and asked what you would like to hear. A lot of you wanted to hear about love and marriage and so today’s episode centres around exactly that. We learn what not to do on a first date, Robbie shares his very unique proposal method and we discover that there would be no Robbie and Ayda Williams without Cameron Diaz…
Nana Gwen!

Nana Gwen!

2020-07-2335:582

This week sees the return of Nana Gwen to the podcast! After weeks of lockdown estrangement, the family are reunited. An emotional reunion in so many ways but prepare yourselves, this episode goes to places you may not expect…
We did not see this one coming as a by-product of lockdown so brace yourselves - but Robbie Williams and Liam Gallagher have called a truce to their decades-old feud. Seriously. Frenemies no more. Robbie reveals how the ice thawed between them and he is all the happier for it. Meanwhile he's lockdowned but loved up with Ayda - still - and as ever, they overshare on that and oh so much more. Narrated by Sarah Millican.

Food is on the agenda as we’re headed back to lockdown in LA where Robbie is about to cook his first meal in about 15 years. That’s right. Ayda has plans for an aubergine feast to be cooked for her, but Robbie very much has other ideas. What could go wrong?

This week’s jaunt to Los Angeles to check in with how Robbie and Ayda Williams are faring - having to be with each other 24/7 in pandemic lockdown - could be summed up in 3 words, Stir. Crazy. Bickering. Not judging its educational value of course, this episode we learn about a Take That's farting policy, as well as a cautionary tale of the perils of biting your nails (if you’re Robbie Williams). Narrated by Sarah Millican.

It’s strange isn’t it. The world right now. And I sense it’s about to get stranger still…  Are you sure you’re ready for Staying At Home with the Williamses?  Last time we checked in Santa was our intrepid guide – but he’s on holiday now – and so Sarah Millican, has bravely taken up the challenge of heckling (or narrating) the weird and - here’s hoping - wonderful things that are happening between the 4 walls of the Williamses LA home.
Strange times call for a little distraction. And what better way to find distraction than check in with our favourite family?!? Robbie & Ayda are back for (Staying) At Home With The Williamses! Get ready for a new series coming very very soon…
More, more, more is what Ayda would like when it comes to Christmas decorations, whereas Robbie cannot shake the memory of feeding the electric meter at his nan’s house, so is happy with less. But, how many Christmas trees should one house contain? Three it seems remains the magic number, at least where one of the Williamses is concerned. As Ayda and her mother recall, frankly when you’ve grown up Christmas party-ing with Mr & Mrs Charlton Heston of Hollywood, there’s no going back to frugality.
Tasked with the online festive food shop by Ayda, this week Robbie and his dad, Papa Pete, take on their culinary challenge with gusto. The pair gets so involved, they even invent a new Christmas dish, which if we’re honest, we’re not sure many people would be able to stomach, with or without the suggested Robbie Williams’ autograph in balsamic vinegar, as he gamely suggests. There’s also a fun game to be had, for Robbie and his dad at least, with guessing how much anyone would pay for an enormous pig-in-blanket. Turns out, more than you’d think.
Come one, come all and join Robbie Williams at home with his family as they rediscover the magic of Christmas in preparation for the 2019 festivities. Well, to be fair, Ayda has always felt magical about this time of year, whereas Robbie used to be quite happy opening his presents on the cold, stone stairs of his bachelor pad. Not any more though, as Ayda and her mother, Nana Gwen, bring Christmas cheer to warm even the frostiest of hearts. And this year, there’s even an olive branch extended for one Liam Gallagher…
As we cosy up for the festive season, the stage is set for us to tell you a Christmas Story. Once upon a time, there was a boy from Stoke...

Who hasn’t put salad cream on watermelon? Bizarre food combos from Robbie Williams’ Christmas past get revealed during this week’s episode, as does the fact that his mother-in-law once used a photocopier inappropriately at an office Christmas party. Who knew? Plus Robbie and Ayda reveal what they’re getting the kids for Christmas - and it means there will be more mouths to feed...

The Christmas Present is not just the title of Robbie’s latest album, it’s also more widely known as the part of Christmas that children tend to favour, as Robbie and Ayda’s three children join in the fun this week. And when you’re young at heart anyway like the Williamses, then presents remain a very core part of the holidays as they all reminisce about favourite gifts from days of yore. Plus, there’s a festive game as the Williamses imagine buying the perfect gift for some of their favourite singers, including Beyoncé, Gary Barlow and yes, Liam Gallagher.
