Robbie Williams has confessed that he once pooed in his own hand while he was trying to secretly fart on board a plane.
The former Take That star, 46, made the disgusting confession while chatting on The Secret’s Out podcast with Alfie Deyes alongside his wife Ayda Field, 41.
The dad-of-four says he was 20,000 feet in the air when he began feeling “gassy”, but that he’s devised a trick to help him sneak out silent trumps, although Ayda disagrees.
The Loose Women panelist asked him: “Was I on this flight with you because you fart a lot when I’m on flights with you. Is that because you don’t want to inflict any more pain on yourself?”
Robbie insisted: “I’m very good with not farting on public flights now. Anyway, so I needed to get rid of the gas. And what I do is so that nobody can hear it’s me, I have a sort of ‘2 finger silencer’ where I just pull the cheek. A semi-lift cheek pull. It’s definitely a silencer. I’m 45. I’m really good at this now.”
Ayda said Robbie’s system doesn’t work as well as he thinks it does, and it seems she’s right.
Robbie then made the gross confession: “Anyway. So I pulled the cheek apart. Let rip and followed through and s*at in my hand.
Horrified host Alfie asked how old Robbie was when this happened, and the singer said it was just last year.
He added: “But fortunately, I got none of it on the fabric.”
His tale then prompted Ayda to make a confession of her own.
She told the podcast: “My secret is similar. I mean, obviously it doesn’t land in my hand but…I went on a girls’ birthday party in Ibiza.
“So we went to this fish restaurant on the beach and I started to eat the food and I was like, ‘I’m not feeling too good’. My stomach’s a bit upset.
“So, we go into this Mercado, a supermarket later on and we’re walking down the aisle. I was like, ‘oh, I feel terrible’ and a bit of gas came out… And I looked down and it wasn’t just gas. It came out.
“I had actually s**t myself a little bit in the supermarket, so there was just a drop of s**t right there. And I was like, erm and ah, it was horrible. It was awful.
“I was looking for napkins. Then I came waddling down the aisle saying ‘I need a tissue right now. I’ve just s*at myself! I did clean up and then I had waddle to the pub and take off what was my bathing suit underneath.
“I had to au natural under my bathing suit cover.
“It’s fine for you [Robbie] because everyone knows you’re disgusting. But I’ve just said that I’ve s*at myself in a supermarket in Ibiza. On the floor in a foreign country. I did clean it, though. I doubt Rob cleaned his.”
When Robbie said he had to clean up the mess he made, Ayda said: “You had no choice it was in your hand.
“I guess you had to. I didn’t. I could have. I could have meandered off. Just left it there. But I just didn’t think that was right.”
Robbie joked: “All I’m saying is that the alcoholic wipes are your friend in that circumstance.”
