Whatever the Government decides, Robbie Williams promises Christmas won’t be cancelled this year.
The former Take That star has recorded a coronavirus-themed festive song, singing lyrics about social distancing over sleighbells in Can’t Stop Christmas – but it isn’t as miserable as it sounds.
“Santa’s on his sleigh, but now he’s two metres away,” croons a cheerful Robbie, who asks for socks and hand sanitiser from online shoppers.
But he admits that his family are “going out of their minds.. beyond boredom past frustration”.

The single’s artwork is reminiscent of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s War is Over poster, and Robbie adds: “It feels like we're at war.”
Adding a positive spin, he sings: “What a miserable year, but what a time to be alive.. Nothing’s gonna stop Christmas, no chance.”

The single features on a special edition of last year’s chart-topping festive album, The Christmas Present. “Let’s lie to Santa Claus,” continues Robbie, 46. “Tell him it’s 1984.”
Well, with mobile telescreens in all our pockets and Donald Trump trying to engage us all in doublethink, Santa will probably assume he’s landed in an Orwellian nightmare, anyway.
