Robbie Williams' wife Adya Field has been tipped to join him on The X Factor.

ITV confirmed last week that alongside Simon Cowell, three new judges will join this year's series while Sharon Osbourne will act as a fifth judge for the live shows.

Both Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh have quit the series, the channel confirmed.

Show bosses have described the change as 'the start of a new era' for the show, which will air its 15th series this year.

As yet, the names of the new judges have not been officially confirmed but The Sun reports that Robbie Williams could be one of them.

The tabloid says that Robbie has been involved in "secret negotiations" and producers are hopeful he'll sign up.

"Robbie has always been Simon’s dream signing," a source said. “Now it appears he’s finally going to get his man."

Joining could be his singer and actress wife Adya Field.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “She thinks doing the show with Robbie will be a lot of fun – particularly as she wants to beat her husband at his own game.

"She can’t wait to get started.”

It's claimed the pair could be part of a £10 million deal.

As for who else could join the show, former judge Dannii Minogue, plus current Britain's Got Talent Alesha Dixon and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson, have been rumoured.

Craig David, Kylie Minogue and Mariah Carey are also touted as potential new faces to the ITV show.

Meanwhile, reacting to last week's news, Louis said: “I’ve had a fantastic 13 years on The X Factor but the show needs a change and I’m ready to leave.

“I’m looking forward to another series of Ireland’s Got Talent, going back to my day job as a manager, writing my memoirs and seeing the world!”

Sharon Osbourne added: “I can’t wait to get back to the judges’ desk. I love the new format.”

The X Factor 2018 will air on ITV later this year.
