Robbie Williams Set To Join Gary Barlow On The X Factor UK Judging Panel This Year?

21 February 2013, 15:14

The 'Different' singer is said to be being lined up as a brand new judge on the show.

Robbie Williams is rumoured to be joining pop pal Gary Barlow on this year's judging panel on The X Factor UK, according to new reports.

The 'Candy' singer is said to be being lined up by the ITV show's bosses in a bid to spice up the show's judging line-up, after falling ratings on the 2012 season.

"This is the dream team," a source told The Sun this week. "We have been looking at the show and thinking the unthinkable.

"Robbie is exactly the right person for the show - but we don't want to lose Gary to get him," they explained. We want them both."

Despite fresh rumours the UK singer may be set to join The X Factor UK, reports suggest the 'Take The Crown' singer could be too busy with his solo arena tour to take on the job.

"Robbie's people are saying he is too busy to do the show," they added. "But we worked around Gary when he first joined the panel and he was touring with Take That and it was fine.

"We know Robbie loves the show and he and Gary have a great friendship and rivalry — there will be fireworks for sure.”

Robbie Williams kicks off his 'Take The Crown' UK arena tour on the 18th June, and an announcement about The X Factor UK's judging panel is expected in the coming months.
