Robbie Williams's 40th birthday is to be celebrated with an art exhibition.

Robbie will be the subject of the exhibition, which will include 70 paintings and will appear at the Burslem School of Art, in the star's home town of Stoke-on-Trent.

The paintings were created by Italian artist Gabriella Guardamagna, a Milan based super-fan, and visitors to the exhibition will be asked to make donations which will raise money for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice Trust in Trentham.

Melanie Williams at The Donna Louise Children's Hospice, said:

FedEx are also supporting the charity, saying they will deliver and return the paintings from Milan free of charge.

Trevor Hoyle, vice president of UK and Ireland operations at FedEx Express, said:

The exhibition will be held at Burslem School of Art from January 29 until February 28.
