The new line-up of X Factor judges has just been unveiled with Robbie Williams and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson joining Simon Cowell for Britain’s search for the next Matt Cardle. But the final member of the line-up has raised a few eyebrows, with many asking, “Who is Ayda Field?”

Who’s That Girl: X Factor’s New Judge Ayda Field

Ayda Field is a former film and television actor, who can be seen on British TV as a guest panellist on daytime show Loose Women. “So how did she get the judging job on X Factor?”, we hear you ask. Well, not to say we know what the producers at ITV are thinking, but she also happens to be Robbie Williams’ wife…

Field actually first became known over in States when she starred in the NBC soap Days of Our Lives – yes, the Joey one. She also guest starred in the sitcom Eve and appeared as Jeannie Whatley on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.


Field made her first UK TV appearance in 2016 in the final series of Fresh Meat. In 2016, she also appeared in the ITV/Netflix series Paranoid, before joining Loose Women as a guest panellist.

So now you’re swatted up on your Ayda Field career history, you can make a more informed decision about her X Factor casting. Though, we couldn’t help but notice her lack of musical background…
