Star Robbie is a demolition man.

POP idol Robbie Williams turned demolition man yesterday to mark World Aids Day.

The singer took control of a crane and let a two-tonne weight crash through a wall for a children's charity.

As the breeze blocks crumbled at an east London building site, the singer raised his arms in victory, grinned and shouted "Yes".

Williams (above) was raising the profile of Unicef's Break The Silence campaign which aims to raise the profile of HIV/Aids.

The charity, for which he is a special representative, painted the words Break the Silence on HIV/Aids on the wall at a disused factory.

As he stepped from the cab, Williams said: "It was really exhilarating - it's a big Tonka truck. I always wanted a go in a big Tonka truck but I didn't think they'd let me."
