Robbie Williams is attempting to cheer up the nation with a brand new Covid-inspired Christmas song – and the glumness of the previous year is nowhere to be seen.

The former Take That star has written Can't Stop Christmas, a song inspired by the pandemic. Of all the things to come out of the last year, we didn't see this being one of them.

That said, Can't Stop Christmas is a jaunty, upbeat tune reminding us that even if Christmas is cancelled, we can all celebrate and mark the occasion, even if we aren't all together.

The lyrics mention social distancing, hand sanitiser, no shops being open and generally how rubbish 2020 has been.

Can't Stop Christmas appears on a new special edition of last year’s chart-topping festive album, The Christmas Present.

“Santa’s on his sleigh, but now he’s two metres away,” Robbie sings in the new song.

"You can't take away the season like you can't take away the wine," he adds - and we'd absolutely agree.

In the song, Robbie continues, "The people gonna need something to believe in after a year of being in, we've got our wish-list, you can't stop Christmas time."

Last year for The Christmas Present, Robbie teamed up with star guests such as Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams, Jamie Cullum and Tyson Fury for what turned out to be his 13th solo number one album.
