Robbie Williams To Be 5th X Factor Judge?

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaRobbie WilliamsSimon Cowell


First Mel B, now Robbie Williams????

The upcoming season of X Factor is shaping up to be fabulous!

Simon Cowell is reportedly bringing Williams on to be the 5th judge at panel - just one of a slew of demands Cowell has laid on ITV!

The other requests, according to reports?

UPPING the number of finalists from 12 to 16.
EXTENDING the series by a month.
MOVING the live shows to London’s Wembley Arena
REPLACING Dannii with a new female judge.

Cowell has thrown an ultimatum ITV's way; grant his requests by enlarging the show's budget by almost $500,000 a week or he'll pull X Factor off the air!!

"A lot of things are going to change next year if we bring the show back. The show needs to change or it starts to fail," Simon told reporters on Saturday night.

Cowell continued to explain: "I’m not looking for a pay rise. All I’ve asked for is an increase in budget… We need more people working on the show and that costs money. I need that commitment from ITV.”

Hey, he's got business sense!

As far as bringing Robbie on as the 5th judge, Cowell says Robbie's "fun, he's got good instincts, he doesn't take himself too seriously and he's a fun guy to be around."

Plus, a little eye candy never hurt anyone!

    He would be off half the time due to his drug habit. Bad choice.

    Ha! I said this was the rumour when I commented on the Danni/Mel B story earlier. Like I said - there is a hint of Hassellhoff about Robbie Williams. He could be a fun, interesting personality against the ultra-serious other judges or he could melt down and end up in an XFactor Rehab show with Susan Boyle and the Hoff.

    Oh Gosh…They just don´t give up with all those meaningless shows in many countries: X-factor, Idol and shit like that

    when will people finally get tired of them? cause I got like ..let see …5-6 years ago…when it´s got so repetitive and boring. It took me awhile to understand what that shit about,hehe…and it´s not about music ( I thought so at the beginning…so stupid I was…ok I was a teenager then…forgivable)

    But now??? I hope these show will "die" naturally when interest dessapears

    Oh Gosh…when will those shit shows (X-factor,Idol and stuff) disappear for good?
    they are not relevant to music business…
    I hope they "die" naturally because of lack of people´s interest finally…hehe

    OMG every year I hear this that Dannii is getting fired. Dannii Minogue is the best judge on the show is caring, lovely, classy and she gets such a hard time from the press. I really hope she stays on the show X factor it would not be the same without her. If anyone should go its Cheryl or Louis and in todays papers Cheryl has said that she wants to leave X factor to have a baby.

    Whatever. Here goes Simon Cowell, drumming up publicity for one of his talent shows. On this side of the pond, it's a Paula Abdul/guest host question, in the U.K. it's Mel B. and/or Robbie Williams. And these fingernail-biting stories always seem to appear just before the shows debut in January.

    Way to manipulate the masses, Simon Cowell. You are a master.

    He would be perfect to look at.

  14. 14

    I would break my celibacy for him

  15. 15

    do your research before you post you fat bastard. Dannii is here to stay. Chezza is not gonna be there next year because she wants a baby and has to record the next Girls aloud album. …

    Re: jones19 – Yeah - He is ug-lee ! He always has that dumb smirk on his face - like he just cut the cheese ! Gross.

  17. 17

    I doubt Chezza will leave she can't shes the best out o her and Dannii, My fav is Louis He brought Jedward to the world lmao!!! gutted Olly didnt win :-(

  18. 18

    Why not Tiger Woods for X-Factor judge? Then at least Perez could find something to write about him.

  19. 19

    Re: vixster – haha….jedward were the best ever :D but i did want joe to win…hes frekin adorable :)

  20. 20

  22. 22

    Ooh I hope this is true. I still love Robbie!

  23. 23

    I would start watching it…

  24. 24

    Please dont expand the show, it would be so tedious. And if they're going to replace any judges, it should be Cheryl or Louis.

  25. 25

    Eye candy? He looks like a ravaged busker!!
