Robbie Williams sparked a bemused reaction when he used hand sanitiser after touching hands with members of the public during his Robbie Rocks Big Ben Live show on BBC1

Robbie Williams' performance on BBC1 last night has been overshadowed by his reaction to touching the hands of the general public...

Robbie was performing at the Westminster Central Hall on BBC1's Robbie Rock Big Ben Live when he high-fived members of the audience then held hands for a rendition of Auld Lang Syne, but then grimaced as he cleaned his hands with anti-bacterial lotion.

The reaction on social media was instantaneous and suitably humourous...

US-based journalist Graeme Demianyk posted on twitter: “Robbie Williams and the anti-bac has already defined 2017.”

Luke Johnston said: “Robbie Williams pulling out the hand gel after doing Auld Lang Syne with the public has been my highlight of 2017 so far.”
