Robbie Williams (born 13 February 1974) is an English singer-songwriter who began his career as part of hugely successful boy band Take That from 1990 to 1995, reuniting with them from 2009 to 2012. He departed the band in 1995 to embark on a solo career and to date has sold 75 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He has also received a record 18 BRIT Awards, winning Best Male four times.

On July 18, 2018, it was announced that he would be joining the judging panel for Series 15 of The X Factor alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson and his wife Ayda Field.  Prior to this, he assisted former judge Gary Barlow at Judges' Houses in Series 8 and Sharon Osbourne at Judges' Houses in Series 10 and Series 13.

As he was on tour in November for almost two weeks, he was replaced by Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers, who assisted Louis Tomlinson at Judges' Houses.

In April 2019, it was announced that he and wife Ayda Field would not be part of the judging line up for Series 16 of the show due to their busy schedules.
