Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

A new adventure for singer Robbie Williams from Stoke-on-Trent as he's announced as one of the judges to join Simon Cowell on ITV talent show The X Factor.

He'll be accompanied by his wife, Ayda, and Louis Tomlinson.

The three new judges appeared at a press conference in London where they were officially revealed.

Now a married man, Robbie, 44, met Field in 2006 and they married three years later. A father-of-two, Robbie is no stranger to responsibility.

He's also part of the line up for charity campaign Soccer Aid.

But - when performing at the opening of the World Cup in Russia, he did make a rude gesture at the cameras- raising his middle finger, proving he hasn't lost his bad boy image entirely.

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!
