I was absent-mindedly watching Robbie Williams’ music video for his latest single, Candy, on TV at home the other day; absent-mindedly, because I really should have been doing something else (working). But my attention was piqued by the sight of a motorhome in the background of a street scene - while a coachbuilt made it onto numerous episodes of Coronation Street, it's fair to say that motorhomes aren’t exactly regular stars of our televisual viewing.

The coachbuilt in question here is a third-generation Fiat Ducato on Italian plates, complete with overcab, left-hand-drive, and a roll-out awning attached to the side. It’s clearly not about to drive off, as the wing mirrors have been folded in.

 

My Google-powered research told me that the music video was filmed in London; was the motorhome merely parked up aside the road by an Italian couple, who found themselves reluctantly part of the filming circus? Or was it Robbie’s home-from-home for the duration of the shoot? I’d love to find out.
