Rumours have been running rife today (Friday) over a mystery helicopter spotted at a local hotel.

CELEBRITY spotters have been churning the rumour mill today (Fri) with reports that Robbie Williams has visited North Devon.

A helicopter was spotted at Saunton Sands Hotel and rumours on Facebook and Twitter emerged it could be the Take That singer.

The hotel denied Mr Williams had visited, saying he had not been at the hotel since 1998.

It would also not confirm who the helicopter belonged to or whether another celebrity had visited.

On Twitter, attention turned to speculation over the ‘mystery guest’ at tonight’s Verity switch on in Ilfracombe.

Local singer Charmain Lovett (@charmain1983) said on Twitter: “Haha! Half of #ilfracombe think that @robbiewilliams is turning on @VerityOfficial ‘s lights! They’ll be gutted that it’s me instead!!”

  • "CELEBRITY spotters have been churning the rumour mill today (Fri)" That's funny, this section of the story was re-written on Thursday! Yesterday it mentioned "reports Robbie Williams was staying at the Saunton Sands hotel." It seems someone at the Gazette has had it pointed out to them the story was entirely made up and is trying to cover their tracks!

  • No, no, no devonmaid, he was working in the chip shop. I read it in the Gazette, so it must be true.
