Robbie Williams and Ayda Field quit X Factor

Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field will not be on the judging panel for the next series of The X Factor.

The celebrity couple joined Simon Cowell and former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson on the ITV show last year as part of a massive shake-up.

In a post on Instagram, the former Take That singer said they would still work with Simon Cowell on other projects.

His wife Ayda wrote on Instagram: ‘We’ve got some very big announcements coming soon – but we can’t reveal all yet.

‘Sadly as it’s impossible to do everything, we’re gutted to tell you we won’t be able to return to The X Factor this year.

‘We will, however, be working on projects with Simon going forward – and as huge fans of the show, we will still be tuning into The X Factor, voting and winding Simon up!’

Cowell has hinted that X Factor will be getting a celebrity version this year.

In February, he told The Sun he has ‘exciting’ plans for the programmes and has been ‘waiting for the opportunity’ to make ‘huge changes’.
