To celebrate Robbie Williams’ birthday, we are on the hunt for replicas of the Sing When You’re Winning superstar.
Lookalikes and namesakes of the singing sensation are being asked to put themselves forward to take part in an adrenaline-filled challenge by riding The Smiler, the world’s first 14 looping roller coaster at Alton Towers Resort.
The daring challenge comes as the self-confessed ‘Stokie’ raises a glass to 40 years today, presumably with his Staffordshire knot tattoo firmly on show.
Graeme Whitehead, Destination Staffordshire’s Tourism Manager said: “Robbie is a global superstar but he’s staunchly proud of his roots in Stoke-on-Trent which is why he’s such an icon in the county. We’d like to wish him a very Happy Birthday and Robbie, if you’re reading this, we’d love you to get involved!”
Throughout the county a number of celebrations are taking place to mark Robbie Williams’ 40th birthday. A musical and art-based ‘Robbie Day’ is taking place at schools across Stoke-on-Trent, tourist trails will showcase the best of the hometown hero’s favourite childhood spots and a three-month exhibition, Portrait of a Potteries Pop Star, will be staged at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery; plus diehard fans might want to look at property on special streets which will be named after Robbie in the summer.
Are you a Robbie Williams doppelganger or do you share his name? If so, take part in the challenge, be in with a chance of winning one of five Thrill Hopper tickets and most importantly say a big Happy Birthday to the man himself. If you fit the bill, we’d love you hear from you. Email email@example.com or contact Enjoy Staffs on Facebook or @EnjoyStaffs on Twitter.
