Robbie Williams hits the poker tables

Lady Gaga isn't the only pop star with a poker face as Take That star Robbie Williams unexpectedly sat down for a game at a Swindon cardroom.

Williams, along with his wife Ayda and friend Jonathan Wilkes put in some last minute preparation for Take That's UK tour which begins in Sunderland later this week with a quick session of hold'em.

There was no comment from Williams' competitors about his poker skills but one player told the Daily Star, “We were really stunned when Robbie and his pals turned up for a game of cards. He didn’t appear to be at his best. He seemed very tired and bloated. He had big bags under his eyes and looked much older than his years.”

Sounds like he's been trying to emulate Phil Laak's marathon effort.
