Who is Ayda? Meet the new X-Factor judges for 2018

All change from Simon Cowell, he wants some new faces beside him at the judging table. Who are the new X-Factor judges for 2018 then?

Replacing Sharon Osborne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls fame, these judges are going to be a mix of obvious choices and WTF.

But that’s what the X-Factor’s all about.

New X-Factor Judges Start With Robbie Williams

Robbie’s been rumoured for years, but Simon finally got his man.

Famously the man who left Take That, Robbie had plenty of success in his solo career.

Last seen shaking things up at the World Cup, Robbie’s clearly ready for a new challenge.

Next Up is Robbie’s Wife: Ayda Fields

We don’t like to define a woman by who she’s with, but in this case her husband is the best known thing about Ayda Fields.

Why is Ayda famous apart from that? Well, she’s an actress, and has appeared on shows like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

She and Robbie have two children together, and he credits her with calming down the worst of his bad boy behaviour.


Louis Tomlinson from One Direction

Yes, Louis is joining the new X-Factor judges.

Having been through the process himself, will he go easy on the contestants?

Or maybe knowing what winning means make him bring the tough love when it comes to hitting the buzzer.

And of course Simon Cowell

One day they might do the X-Factor without Simon Cowell.

Just don’t expect it to be any time soon. The show is one of his big moneymakers even now, so he’ll keep himself right in the thick of the action.

How will he do against the husband and wife time of Robbie and Ayda? Will Simon and Louis Tomlinson join forces?

As always, we’ll have to wait and see.

Who Presents X-Factor?

We’re back in the safe hands of Dermot O’Leary.

Presenting for the third year in a row, he’s a firm favourite with performers and the audience at home alike.

Won’t stop him poking fun at Simon though!
