THE £ FACTOR Robbie admits: I’m in it for the money
POP star Robbie Williams has admitted signing up as an judge “for the money”.
The former Take That singer will sit alongside his wife Ayda Field, One Direction hearthrob Louis Tomlinson and returning head honcho Simon Cowell.
But Robbie, 44, said his reasons for accepting the job on the 15th season of the ITV show were multi-layered.
Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, he said: “It’s a weird question to be asked. JUDGE: Robbie signed up to former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan sent fans into a spin when he appeared to tease a mini-reunion with the newly appointed X Factor judge.
The Irish heartthrob, 24, was asked if he would like to join Louis, 26, on the singing competition.
Answering a question about whether or not he’d like to be involved, the Slow Hands crooner said: “Of course. Can’t wait to go down and see him in action.”
