Robbie said the track on album The Christmas Present 'makes sense in some sort of universe' and it came about after he met Tyson in Las Vegas.

He explained: 'I got my residency in Vegas and while I was out there Tyson was fighting.

'He invited me into his dressing room, is it called a dressing room when you fight? I don't know, and I asked him and he said yes.

'The song itself, Bad Sharon, is basically a boozy office party somewhere in the Midlands and it makes sense for Tyson, in that moment in my head, and to be fair he's smashed it.'

For his first Christmas album the father-of-three, who married wife Ayda Field in 2010, also sang with Bryan Adams and Rod Stewart.

He said that both of the acclaimed artists have been inspirations to him throughout his career as a singer, first in Take That and when he went solo.    

Robbie said: 'They're both really lovely chaps, incredibly nice people, incredibly nice with me and I look up to them.

'They're the people I've gone, "Right OK, what happens to your career when you get older, where do you go? How do you do it?" And I watch them for inspiration.'   

The Angels singer - who will perform a festive show at the SSE Arena, Wembley, in support of the record on 16 December - is also 'incredibly proud' that his father, Pete Conway, has joined him on another song.

Speaking at a playback event for the record in London on Thursday, he said: 'My dad's on a track called A Wonderful Life and it's written and created in Stoke-on-Trent.

'I'm happy and incredibly proud that a lot of this album has come out of the five towns and there are two boys singing it from the five towns, me and my dad and he absolutely kills it.'

New project: Robbie said 'releasing this record is another dream come true' and will be his first ever festive-themed album
