Robbie Williams has taken take time out from his Take That reunion to write a song for an "adult panto" show starring his friend Jonathan Wilkes and Phoenix Nights comedian/TV Presenter Paddy McGuinness. Pantos On Strike arrives at the  Manchester Opera House in November.

Wilkes described the show as "a little bit risque" and said it was "definitely not for the children". "Robbie's writing the first song for the show." "He agreed to do that before he agreed to the Take That comeback," he added.

The show also stars Brian Capron and Eric Potts.

Pantos On Strike runs at the Manchester Opera House from 12 - 20 November.
