Robbie Williams lookalike recently emerged and he took his tribute act to a whole new level. He married the star’s backing dancer. Tony Lewis has been performing as the singer’s double since his version of Let Me Entertain You won a karaoke competition in 2001.
He met wife Shelina when performing as Robbie on BBC show The One and Only in 2008. After the two connected, he learned she had previously been a backing dancer for the singer.
“We’ve been married 12 years and have two kids.Without Shelina as Robbie’s backing dancer, maybe we’d have never met. In a way, Robbie has not just given me a career — he’s also shaped my life and my family’s lives as well.”
Liam Gallagher made a mistake
Ex-plumber Tony, 43, of Leigh, Gtr Manchester, performs worldwide, has met Robbie twice and has been mistaken for him by the former Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher and Olly Murs. He said of his Take That star idol:
“I met him on Channel 4 in 2005. He was so nice and pleasant, asking what I thought of his new album. I also met him a few years ago when I was booked to prank him on Saturday Night Takeaway. It was great to see him again. He’s always been supportive giving me shout-outs and advice.”
