Take That’s Robbie Williams hints he’ll join Gary Barlow on X Factor 2013

Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Robbie Williams joining The X Factor judging panel this year, after the Take That star dropped more hints that he could be taking part in the show.

The ‘Candy’ hitmaker revealed last year that Simon Cowell has previously asked him to judge on the show, but until now he has firmly turned any offers of a full time position down.

After he assisted Gary Barlow at judges houses in 2011 Rob revealed that he would find it hard to destroy hopeful singers’ dreams and admitted:

“I’ve got my personality to look after, if I was doing it I would desensitise myself to the emotion.

“I would find it difficult, who wants to break a 16-year-old’s heart?

However, it seems he may have been talked around as the new dad has confessed he would quite like to join Gaz on the panel this year, if he could work it around his other commitments.

He told BBC London: “It would be great if Gary was on it and I was on it.

“The audition dates run through my tour, so I just don’t know if I can do it.”

Williams revealed that he would “think about it [joining the X Factor panel]” if X Factor boss Simon flew his dog Spencer over from LA.

As a result of his comments and a HUGE bet on his joining the judges’ table, bookies William Hill have slashed the odds on Robbie taking part.

The bookmakers revealed that they have seen a monster Gamble for the ‘Let Me Entertain You’ singer to be a judge, slashing his price from 20/1 all the way to 6/4.

“Just four days ago Robbie was a 20/1 outsider, now he is just 6/4 and gambles such as these usually have some substance behind them!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

The other two movers in the market are Mel B, trimmed from 6/1 to 4/1 and Sharon Osbourne who is now 6/5.

    Only if he and Gary work together, not as competitors.
    Since that’s impossibile with the current rules of the show (maybe a little change in the format after 10 years?), I would prefer not.
    The last thing Robbie and Take That as 4 need is a stupid fight between dumb GB and RW fans, unable to recognize when their idols are just pretending for the show. Robbie and Gary would easily joke and be harsh on the show, if they’re asked to and since it’s what producers would expect them to do, but the fans would never understand that it’s just work.
    They believe whatever the appareance shows.
    Most of people, even adults (!), still think the fights on the XF panel are real… I mean, where do you live?!… just because they find the all the details on Star, Hello and Heat.. -.-

    Well, Gary has just been confirmed as taking part for next year, so can you just imagine if Robbie got the job? The bickering, arguments, sledging, etc, not to mention they go way back as mates and would take over in that sense as well at times, there would be no time left for them to do what they are there to do, to judge the acts taking part in the X Factor. Sorry, but I think this would be a very bad idea.
    Nothing wrong with him helping Gary out at judges houses though.
