Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field have both been named as X Factor judges alongside former One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson. All three new judges were pictured at the X Factor press conference called to reveal the new judges.
The trio were pictured entering Somerset House in London along with Cowell and Sinitta dressed as Simon Cowell. As you do…

Meanwhile, Williams and his wife Ayda had both been heavily rumoured as possible X Factor judges before this Tuesday’s announcement.
According to The Mirror, one source said Loose Women panelist and actress Ayda Field ‘couldn’t wait to get started’ on the show, saying that she thought “doing the show with Robbie will be a lot of fun – particularly as she wants to beat her husband at his own game.”

While not confirming his involvement at the time, Robbie addressed the X Factor rumours when he made an appearance on This Morning back in June.
The former Take That star said: “People are talking, nothing has been signed. But watch this space. I promise if it is a go ahead and I do it you will be the first people I come and speak to about it. Yeah, shake. It’s a yes from me.”
