Williams also revealed that his wife Ayda Field came up with the title for his festive single Can’t Stop Christmas, and that told him not to be "lazy" before he wrote the song.

"She said, 'There’s never been a more weird time on the planet, why don’t you write a song about what’s going on?’

"She said, ‘Call it, Can’t Stop Christmas’. So off I trotted in August and got into a Christmas state of mind.

"You just believe it and you become it. You can access Christmas at any time. I genuinely love Christmas. I did when I was a kid."

The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Monday, 10pm on Virgin Media One.
