Robbie Williams and Ayda Field won't be returning as judges on The X Factor. The couple have quit the show after just one series.

Robbie confirmed the news on Instagram.

"A quick update from Team Williams… it’s been a very busy year so far. Vegas has been incredible and we cannot wait for June and July to do it all again...

"We’ve got some very big announcements coming soon - but we can’t reveal all yet. Sadly though it’s impossible to do everything … and we’re gutted to tell you we won’t be able to return to The X Factor this year.

"We will, however, be working on projects with Simon going forward - and as huge fans of the show, we will still be tuning into The X Factor, voting and winding Simon up."

A quick update from Team Williams… it’s been a very busy year so far. Vegas has been incredible and we cannot wait for June and July to do it all again. I’ve got the massive @BSTHydePark show on July 14 and I’ve written the lyrics and music for the #RSCBoyInDress show with @guyachambers - opening on November 8. As well as all this we’ve got some very big announcements coming soon - but we can’t reveal all yet. Sadly though it’s impossible to do everything … and we’re gutted to tell you we won’t be able to return to The X Factor this year. We will, however, be working on projects with Simon going forward - and as huge fans of the show, we will still be tuning into The X Factor, voting and winding Simon up…x

The singer explained that filming the new series will clash with his upcoming Vegas gigs and Hyde Park show in July.

Williams has also been writing the music and lyrics for the stage show version of David Walliams' book The Boy In The Dress.

Show bosses have yet to confirm the judging panel for the new season. It's unclear whether One Direction's Louis Tomlinson will return as a judge with show boss Simon Cowell.
