Loose Women's Ayda Field and Loose Man Robbie Williams join The X Factor as new judges with Simon Cowell!
LOOSE WOMEN'S AYDA FIELD AND LOOSE MAN ROBBIE WILLIAMS JOIN THE X FACTOR AS NEW JUDGES!
We've got the X Factor - at least our Ayda and popstar husband Robbie have!
The couple were announced as the new X Factor judges alongside Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell.
Ayda said: 'On a professional level I’ve auditioned for years so I know the highs and lows. I know what it takes to help people achieve their dreams. It’s all about the auditionees, it’s an organic process. The fact I get to work with Rob and against him is fantastic!'
Robbie said: 'For nearly 30 years I’ve been touring. I’ve been wanting to branch out and The X Factor felt like the perfect vehicle. Ayda is my rock, she’s looked after me through thick and thin. I’m looking forward to getting started as a judge!'
And the clues were there when our Ayda interviewed Simon Cowell on Loose Women in May 2018 with Robbie acting as her 'assistant' - see the video for evidence.
Simon: 'Rob and myself had a chance to work together many, many years ago but I was dumped. We would have been really good friends.'
Rob: 'It wasn't me you dumped Simon.'
Simon: 'It's uncomfortable.'
Ayda: 'I feel like there could be a part deux...'
Simon: 'I hope so. I'm up for it.'
Robbie: 'I'm in!'
Ayda, who is an actress and presenter, will be competing with Robbie, Simon and Louis to claim the winning spot on this year’s show. It is the first time on The X Factor UK that a husband and wife have been judges.
We can't wait to see what Ayda and Robbie get up to on screen alongside Simon and Louis when The X Factor returns to ITV!
