Robbie Williams and Ayda Field have revealed that they were threatened with being beheaded during their charity work on the streets of Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake which claimed the lives of an estimated 250,000 people and left over one million displaced.

Metro reports that the shocking story was recounted when Williams joined wife Field on her Postcards from the Edge podcast. The couple had flown to Haiti to help the charity UNICEF after the 7.0 magnitude quake hit in January 2010.

"I got threatened to be beheaded in Haiti [sic]," said Williams. 

"We were going out there to help. 'I was like, 'Should we go to the next street then?' and looking back, it was scary." 

"I was with you," continued Field. "I too was being threatened to be beheaded as well [sic]." 

"As we walked around Jacmel on the first day, it's hard to explain in words the massive and devastating impact that the earthquake clearly had - it's a whole different league from what I had imagined I would see," recalled Williams.

"It was almost unbelievable, like a movie set. Cars completely crushed - some still poking out from underneath the buildings that have fallen on top of them."
