Could Robbie Williams take Simon Cowell’s X Factor job?

A report has suggested that Robbie Williams could be the fella to take over Simon Cowell’s role on the X Factor if he quits.

Simon insists he “hasn’t made any commitments to anything yet”, but if he heads to the US, show bosses reportedly reckon Robbie would be a great replacement judge.

“Robbie is a huge name so would naturally be a massive ratings hit,” a source said.

“Not only that, he is also straight-talking and comical.”

“We all understand that right now America is where Simon’s focus has to be,” the insider told the Daily Star.

“There aren’t many people that can fill his shoes, but Robbie just might be able to do it.”
