The Glasgow Daily Record reports Jonathan Wilkes is laughing at suggestions he and best pal Robbie Williams are gay lovers, fueled after Jonathan had the numbers 1823 etched on his thigh. And Robbie, 29, had 1023 put on his wrist as a tribute to his mate the numbers, corresponding to letters of the alphabet, being code for their initials. He says that now he’s also gotten a tattoo on the other thigh for his fiance dancer Nikki Wheeler. “The gay tag for me and Rob has always been tongue-in-cheek,” he said. “We are just two best mates who have grown up together, and because we were both single ended up living together.” Jonathan now shares a house with Nikki in Chiswick, West London. He added: ”When I get married, people will instantly expect Robbie to be the best man. But as long as Nikki turns up, that’s all that matters.”
