Robbie Williams has revealed stars should watch out for 2FM presenter Nicky Byrne at a celebrity soccer match tomorrow.

The Take That star was meant to take on Westlife singer Nicky in Soccer Aid tomorrow – but has been taken out because of a back injury.

But the Millenium singer warned the other celebrities that Nicky plays rough.

He said: “You know that thing at the start of the game where you just go, ‘I’m here’?

“I thought I’d do a bit of that – and he hit me. I thought, ‘Oh! He’s here!’ So Nicky Byrne’s scrappy.”

Other celebs that Nicky will face include X Factor host Dermot O’Leary, comedian Patrick Kielty and actors James McAvoy, Jeremy Renner and Dominic Cooper.

All funds raised from the match will go to UNICEF.
