Robbie Williams’ wife has revealed all about their messy first date.
Talking about how she met her husband, presenter Ayda Field admitted on Celebrity Juice that their first date – a blind one – got a ‘little messy’ because it was just before his second stint in rehab.
She said: “We met on a blind date, actually in Los Angeles. It was before his second stint in rehab, so it got a little messy towards the end.”
Ayda also insisted she had no idea who he was and just thought a ‘tattooed bloke from Stoke’ had popped in for a date.

“You must have been gutted, a heavily tattooed man from Stoke turned up and you went ‘well this must be the mini cab driver, where’s my date? This is unacceptable.'”
A laughing Ayda told him: “I did say that to him when I met him I said, that was unacceptable.”
Ayda recently admitted that she and husband Robbie split up several times before getting hitched in 2010.

Speaking on Loose Women, she explained: “We had a couple of break-ups – the one I’m talking about is the final one. I was shooting a show at the time and he went out to a hotel bar – and Cameron Diaz happened to be there.
“He got talking to her about it all and she said ‘Look you obviously still love your girlfriend, you need to go and get her back’. That night, he came to see me… and we’ve been back together ever since. So thank you, Cameron Diaz!”
