Robbie Williams reveals why he has joined The X Factor

Robbie Williams being a judge on The X Factor just makes sense, doesn’t it? Big personality, a lengthy career of hits and a household name with a fanbase spanning generations.

Simon Cowell knows that too, which is why he’s been asking Robbie to do it for years, but he’s always turned it down. What made him change his mind?

“Genuinely it was the Ayda card, genuinely,” he said in an interview on Lorraine that is due to air in full on Friday (August 31).

“You know, I thought about doing it often but I have been really really busy with my own career, and then Ayda got a call in the car from Nigel the producer of the show and said do you think Rob will do it if you do it too?

“And instantly, I was like that makes complete sense – I’m totally in.”

“Do you know the amazing thing is, since starting to do the show, I can’t believe I haven’t done it before!”

Robbie, his wife Ayda Field and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson are the new judges for this year’s series, a line-up that divided fans on announcement.

Personally, we think Robbie could be the best thing to happen to the show in years. or he could be terrible. We’re excited to see how it turns out.

The X Factor returns to ITV on Saturday (September 1) at 8pm.
