Robbie Williams spotted filming his new music video in Leysdown, Isle of Sheppey

Former Take That star Robbie Williams rushed to the aid of an excited fan after she crashed her car.

The Angels singer was in Leysdown filming a video for his Christmas single when the drama unfolded.

She was driving past the set as her friend filmed the action from the passenger seat, but a momentary lapse in concentration resulted in a prang.

Sarah Howe, whose mum Barb owns the Garden Cafe, of Shellness Road, said she heard there was a celebrity on location and went to look.

"I thought it might be Ed Sheeran but itturned out to be Robbie."A director asked that the cafe be used in the video but Sarah says the family wasn't keen on closing up for the day as they were only offering £100 compensation.
