Ayda Field reveals husband Robbie Williams planned on ‘ditching’ her on first date

When it comes to iconic couples in the music industry, they don’t come stronger than Ayda Field and Robbie Williams, with the loved up couple marking their 14th wedding anniversary in 2024. Yet despite their loved-up romance and happy home life with their four children, the actress revealed it wasn’t always the case as Robbie had previously considered “ditching” her on their very first date!

Reflecting on that fateful day on Thursday’s (25 April) episode of Loose Women, Ayda told panelists Denise Welch, Christine Lampard and Nadia Sawalha exactly what had happened and how one unexpected twist had led them to turn things around.

Ayda said: “To be honest, Rob and I were set up on a blind date and when we first met each other, we did not like each other. We were like…I came in the house, it was really dark, it was really weird.”

Bemused by what she was hearing, Nadia then questioned: “What so there were no lights on?”

Continuing her tale, Ayda then continued: “There wasn’t even a candle! And I was like is this to save on the bill? Is this a personal choice? – What’s happening here? Even the dog went meh-meh-meh. Like ‘hello, it’s dark.’ So I came in and it’s just super awkward between us and I think we both just decided, eh, this isn’t going to work.”

After their disastrous first introduction, Ayda went on to reveal that her friends contacted the pair to ask if they wanted to return to the party they had previously been enjoying as she continued:” My friends called me and asked, do you want to come back to the party? And he said yes!”

It was then that Ayda dropped the bombshell that Robbie had actually intended on ditching her at the party after deciding he wasn’t interested in pursuing a relationship.

She continued: “I didn’t know he planned on ditching me at the party, I was just happy to be with humans and some electricity! So we get back into the car and I think because we had just already assumed we weren’t each other’s person, we chilled out and started to talk.”

It was this far more chilled out interaction that actually saw romance blossom between the pair, with the pressure from the initial situation having soon dissipated into something more enjoyable.

Ayda concluded: “We both just started to laugh and I thought he’s really funny and he thought, ‘Oh she’s a bit of fun’ so by the time we got to the party we were really relaxed with each other.”

Since that memorable day, Ayda and Robbie have gone from strength to strength and even welcomed four children together, Theodora Rose, 11, Charlton, 9, Colette five, and the youngest member of the family, Beau, who turned four in February.
