Cheeky as ever, he stuck his tongue out for a snap with Ayda, 44, as they enjoyed a night out together ahead of the milestone birthday – weeks after he randomly defaced a road sign.
‘I’m very content and I’m very grateful,’ Robbie wrote in a sprawling caption about his big day, in which he referenced his rather wild past.
‘For me, it’s hard to get excited about ‘’Your special day’’ Because life has been so kind to me and to be honest, every day that I experience -in its own way- is f**king epic,’ the former Take That star added.
And epic it has been as Robbie was no stranger to partying and living life large in his youth, although he has since settled down to being a dad to his four children.
While the Supreme hitmaker has had plenty of unbelievable stories from his life in the spotlight, including clucking like a chicken in a jacuzzi, one cheeky tale is possibly the most bonkers we’ve ever heard.

In 2016, he appeared on Graham Norton’s big sofa for a chat in which the host asked: ‘What’s the maddest thing a fan has given you?’
‘Herpes’ was the short, sweet and brutally honest reply, leaving the Graham Norton Show viewers utterly gobsmacked.
Graham wholeheartedly disagreed and in true Robbie fashion, the star went on to overshare details of their encounter – after he confessed he shouldn’t be telling it on national TV.
‘Back in the day, I was renting a castle to rehearse in. I was in this room and I woke up and I was awake but hadn’t opened my eyes,’ he began.

‘I was getting confused because there was someone tidying my room. And there was a lady at the bottom of my bed holding a feather duster.’
His conversation with this intruder took a turn when she boldly asked him: ‘Have you got morning glory?’
Robbie continued: ‘I said, “Yeah I have”, so then she said, “I’ll w*** you off.”
‘I thought, I’m young, I can close my eyes and pretend it’s someone else. So I was like “Go on then.”‘
Somewhat alarmingly, when Robbie spoke to the castle owner they revealed there hadn’t been a cleaner in that day, so his new acquaintance had actually broken in.
‘So someone walked in off the street with a duster, gave me a hand job and left!’ Robbie told a shocked audience.
He, of course, later told his bandmates about the experience – which had happened way before he met Ayda – only to find out they knew exactly who had done it.
His bassist told him: ‘I know who that was, that was Maureen from the pub. She said she’d done it and no one believed her!‘
