Robbie Williams mocks Jimmy Page

Robbie Williams mocked Jimmy Page during his gig in London on Sunday (25.09.16).

The 'Angels' hitmaker has had an ongoing battle with the Led Zeppelin rocker - who owns the house next door to his in the upmarket Kensington area of the capital - over renovations to his home and couldn't resist taking a swipe at the veteran musician during his Apple Music Festival show at Camden's Roundhouse.

As the opening bars of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' kicked in, Robbie said: "This one is for my next door neighbour."

He then repeatedly sang "I'm gonna dig a big hole... And fill it full of s**t" before launching into his own song 'Kids'.

Robbie - who has children Teddy, four, and Charlton, 23 months, with wife Ayda Field - has spent over a year renovating his mansion, with work being done over five floors, including a lower ground floor featuring a pool, gym and cinema room, in order to create a "contemporary standard of family living".

But 71-year-old Jimmy objected to the plans, telling the local council he was "extremely concerned" they would create an eyesore and possibly damage his own home through subsidence.

He wrote: "The consequences for the building fabric and decorative finishes of The Tower House may well be catastrophic if this project is allowed to proceed."

He went on to make two further objections, but the council finally approved Robbie's plans in July 2015.

However, the 33-week renovations lasted over a year, with builders working 11-hours a day to get things complete so the 42-year-old pop star and his family could move in.

The Apple Music Festival continues until September 30 with performances from the likes of Britney Spears and Michael Buble.

For those who were unable to catch Robbie in person, the show - and the rest of the 10th annual free festival gigs - is available live and on-demand to Apple Music members in 100 countries.
