Robert William "Robbie" Savage (born 18 October 1974 in Wrexham, Wales) is a radio presenter and former Welsh professional footballer who played predominantly as a midfielder. During his career he captained Derby County, and also played for the Welsh national team. He now presents 606 on BBC Radio Five Live on Sunday evenings alongside Mark 'Chappers' Chapman. He is currently appearing on series 9 of Strictly Come Dancing.

He gained notoriety for his playing style. In 2008, the Daily Mail labelled him as the dirtiest player in Premier League history, based on numbers of yellow cards received, though he has since been surpassed as the player with the most Premier League yellow cards by Lee Bowyer.
