Celebrity spotting @ Old Spitalfields

The weather was a bit moody this morning. Mish mash of rain & sun.

Mr.B & I were running errands in Bishopsgate area today.
We became a bit peckish and decided to have a quick bite at our favourite haunt, Spianata.
Mr.B was enjoying a sun on his face. Feels good, doesn’t it?…

Image

By the time we got there, most of the sandwiches were gone. So we settled for Prosciutto & Mozzarella (Parma Ham & Mozzarella)…

Image

For dessert, I went for chocolate cake instead my usual favourite, Ciambellotto al Limone (Lemon Cake).
How did I find it? Mmmm… it was a bit too bland. I will definitely not pick it next time…

Image

As we chomped our lunch, I noticed rows of people hanging on to the steel barriers erected on the pavement not far from the cafe. Most of them were thrusting up their smart phones.
What on earth is going on?…

Image

Do you recognize the man on the left with pink suits?
It was Robbie Williams! He was filming his new music video in Spitalfields.

Image

Robbie walked over to the middle of the street…

Image

And rolled on the tarmac while AD looked on…

Image

Robbie being helped to back on his feet…

Image

Having a little chat…

Image

And walked back to the pavement…

Image

By the way, the man in a white shirt was NOT Robbie…
He was his body double who would undertake the stunt.
As you can see, he was wearing a pair of elbow guard under his sleeve…

Image

And a medic on standby, of course…

Image

The stunt man’s resemblance to Robbie Williams was remarkable.
A bit more beefier than Robbie. Maybe he was wearing a body armour underneath?…

Image

I managed to capture Robbie and his double in the same frame.
From the distance, they look like twins, don’t they?…

Image

Then again, Robbie walked over to the same spot where he was lying down…

Image

And crouched down…

Image

I am not a huge fan of Robbie Williams. Well, I am not a fan of boy bands in general.
However, it was genuinely interesting to see the filming.
The only one who seemed to disagree with me was Mr.B. He was bored to stiff in the carrier…

Image

Robbie and his entourage chilling out under the canopy…

Image

Then, Robbie went inside his winnebago, parked ostensibly by the opposite pavement.
And the crowd started to flake away, obviously they wouldn’t be hanging around here forever.
Likewise, I decided to leave too. I had to drop in at post office before they were closed…

Image

So, to find out how the stunt is done will have to wait until a new music video of Robbie is released.
I am very much looking forward to it. And you?…
