Simon Cowell has revealed that Robbie Williams and Ayda Field are set to return to The X Factor‘s judging panel next year.
This year’s series saw a big change to the panel, as Simon was the only returning judge and he took on the famous couple, along with Louis Tomlinson, to help him out.
The 59-year-old’s decision was first met with uneasiness by fans, but many viewers have now warmed up to the new lineup and Simon has revealed that Robbie and Ayda are already set for the 2019 series.
“I’ve spoken to Robbie who with Ayda definitely wants to come back, I hope Louis does too. The truth is they have all had a great time,” he told The Mirror.
Despite the show’s low viewing figures, the judge is happy with what the programme has accomplished this year: “There’s nothing much you can do about it. If I was a broadcaster I would think we had an easy year. This is a stressful job but when you have a great team around you, you don’t get stressed and it’s so much fun.”
The X Factor final airs tonight at 7:30PM on Virgin Media One.
