Robbie's 'a lady'
13:30 02 February 2005
Robbie Williams dressed up like a lady to film a comedy sketch for British TV telethon 'Comic Relief'.
The heartthrob singer donned a brown wig, pink dress, fake breasts and a corset to play a transvestite for a special episode of the hugely popular BBC comedy 'Little Britain'.
In the sketch, Robbie stumbles into a dress shop, run by two transvestites, by accident, but leaves kitted out as a woman after being persuaded to try on the clothes by the two peculiar shopkeepers.
After leaving the store, Robbie says: "I feel comfortable like this. I feel like I've discovered the real me. I'm a lady!"
The show's co-creator Matt Lucas, who is openly gay, admits he found the 'Radio' singer extremely attractive dressed as a woman.
He said: "I thought he was simply dashing as a lady. I think even Robbie would agree that the whole experience allowed him to find a part of himself which he didn't know existed before."
Other stars to appear on the special show - which will air on March 11 - include Sir Elton John and George Michael who have both filmed separate sketches.
The star-studded programme is expected to be one of the highlights of the telethon - which aims to raise money for famine victims in Africa and various charities in Britain.
