Robbie Williams has announced his first ever Christmas album – and it will feature boxer Tyson Fury.

The Let Me Entertain You singer said on Twitter that he was “so excited” to be unveiling his first ever record of festive tracks.

The album is called The Christmas Present, and includes 28 songs divided into Christmas past and future.

One, entitled Bad Sharon, features heavyweight fighter Fury.

The boxer is not the only star lending vocals to the record, with Jamie Cullum, Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams also listed as contributors.

Williams, 45, had teased the news before making his announcement, sharing a saucy picture of him naked with only his hands protecting his modesty.

The picture shared on social media showed the star apparently imposed in the middle of a classical painting.

Covering his modesty with his hands, the father-of-three grinned as the figures behind him looked on in shock and horror.

“I’m revealing something huge tomorrow x,” he captioned the saucy shot.

The Christmas Present – which drops on 22 November – is Williams’s first album since 2016’s The Heavy Entertainment Show.

That album, like nearly all of the singer’s efforts, topped the charts in the UK.

Since then the star has been busy raising his children with wife Ayda Field and the pair also did a stint as judges on The X Factor.

However, the couple revealed earlier this year that they would not be returning to the judging panel of the talent show in 2019.

They cited their work schedules as the reason behind them not coming back.
