Reports have reached us that Take That star (and multi-award winner) Robbie Williams is to join forces with pal Olly Murs to join the X Factor UK’s 2014 judging panel.

According to website Holy Moly (whose relationship with the show can be deemed as fairly strong and therefore somewhat reliable), the two singers have apparently signed on the dotted line.

With all the current judges (Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Gary Barlow) confirmed to be departing after the series ends, Williams and Murs’ inclusion leave two seats remaining on the panel. If rumours are to be believed, it’s understood that both Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole could be ready to reprise their original roles, completing the full line-up.
