Tyson Fury recorded Robbie Williams Christmas single in his living room

ROBBIE Williams and Tyson Fury release their Christmas single, Bad Sharon, this month and now the boxing champ has revealed he didn’t even step inside a studio to record his vocals.

Appearing on The Chris Evans Virgin Radio Breakfast Show this morning, the 31-year-old admitted he recorded his lyrics in the comfort of his living room.

Speaking to radio host Chris, Tyson explained: “It was all a thing where I was trying to fit it in and I was supposed to come down to a studio in London to record it, but I never got enough time.

“So what happened was they came to my living room, at home, set up a studio and I recorded it at home,” he added.

Revealing how the duet came about, Tyson continued: “Robbie was at one of my fights in Las Vegas and he came backstage to see me. And he said to me, ‘you’re a bit of a singer, you sing after your fights, would you like to do a Christmas song with me?’

“I said, ‘for sure, I'm a massive fan’, and we got hooked up and got it done and it's going to be out in a couple of days.”

Bad Sharon is expected to be this year’s Christmas number one, beating the likes of Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi.

But as well as being a singer and a world champion boxer, Tyson is also a father-of-five.

Discussing his role as a dad, he told Chris: “I'm a full-time, hands on father. I take the kids to school in the morning, I get them up, feed them breakfast, pick them up from school. It's hard work. Five children is hard work for sure!”

Admitting he will probably have a couple of fights next year, Tyson also spoke about his plans for the future post-boxing.

“I'm already managing young fighters coming through, so yeah, that's what I want to do,” he said.

“And I want to open a boxing gym, not to be a trainer or anything like that, but to give other young people like myself an opportunity to do something in sports, because without the gym being there, the boxing club, I wouldn't be the man I am today, that's for sure.”

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show is on every week day from 6.30 – 10am on Virgin Radio.
