Grim-faced Robbie Williams breaks cover after X Factor absence

Robbie Williams looked a little uncomfortable and awkward as he was photographed on his return to the UK.

The star and his wife Ayda Field have been reunited after he took time off from the X Factor to tour South America.

And they decided to celebrate their reunion by taking a trip to the VIP launch of festive event Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park with their kids Teddy, six, and Charlton, four.

The husband and wife were pictured sitting together on a ride, with Robbie in the driving seat of a dodgem.

But he looked a little uncomfortable.

While Ayda was beaming for photographers, Robbie looked awkward and uncomfortable.

And he even told snappers as much.

An insider at the event said: "Robbie seemed in a bit of a funny mood. He wouldn’t talk to press on the red carpet, then he asked photographers to stop taking pictures of him.

"He said he’d be happy to pose for pictures but that he felt uncomfortable with them taking pictures of him while he was on any of the rides.

"He just kind of looked like he didn’t want to be there."

Robbie is set to return to the X Factor this weekend alongside his wife and their fellow judges Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson.

Nile Rodgers stepped in to cover Robbie while he went off to honour his South American tour dates.

While he’s been away, Robbie has lot two acts.

And frustratingly, one of the gigs he missed X Factor for ended up being cancelled.

He said on Twitter that Personal Fest 2018 had been cancelled due to bad weather on November 10.

He said: "Tonight’s festival has been cancelled for health and safety reasons due to the terrible weather in Buenos Aries. Absolutely gutted x."

The former Take That star continued to promote his groups and ask his fans to get behind them.

He said in one post: "My groups smashed it again! Get @thexfactor app and get voting x #xfactor #teamrobbie."
