BEING rival judges on The X Factor might not be the best thing for Robbie Williams and Ayda Field’s marriage.
Robbie, who is handling the Groups in the ITV series, has vowed not to help his actress missus, who is looking after the Overs, despite his decades of inside knowledge of the music industry.

The former Take That star, who is on the panel alongside Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell, laid into Ayda, saying: “She’s so neurotic, she finds something to worry about and then jumps from one worry to another.
“Last night she was like, ‘Boo, you need to help me with the music choices, you’ve got to give me some good songs, I really need your help’. In my head I’m going, ‘I’m not going to help you, I want to win’. So I just keep going, ‘OK, OK’.
“I’m sure I’ll end up sleeping on the couch — it won’t be the first time.”
Lucky that Ayda appears to be secure in the relationship, as Robbie often jokes about his past conquests.

Ayda said that whenever the pair turn on the TV ‘we’ll see somebody Rob has slept with’[/caption]
She said in a recent interview: “Whenever we turn on the TV, particularly in England, we’ll see somebody Rob has slept with. It even happened in a Mommy And Me class.
“He dragged me into the ball pit going, ‘Psst, I slept with that mum but I don’t remember her name’.
“I was like, ‘Ugh, you d**k’. Rob’s slept with lots of people, but it doesn’t bother me because what happens before you meet someone is part of their journey.”

Squat right now, Rita
RITA Ora took to the stage in full gym gear, pictured, for a late, late slot at Heaven nightclub’s G-A-Y night in London.

The Hot Right Now hitmaker was really put through her paces[/caption]
And she wasn’t the only one put through their paces on stage over the weekend.
Rylan Clark-Neal was strapped into a harness and whipped on the bum by Britney Spears as the singer led him by a leash during her performance of Freakshow at London’s O2.
As workout fan Rita might say: No pain, no gain, Rylan.
Kendrick set kept under raps
KENDRICK Lamar should perhaps practice what he preaches.
The Humble hitmaker was accused of being a diva after banning the BBC from broadcasting his headline set at the sold-out festival on TV and radio.

Taking to social media in their droves, one furious fan tweeted: “F*** Kendrick for refusing to have his Reading set aired live. Failing to see what this achieves!”
After the backlash, BBC Radio 1 was forced to announce on Twitter: “At artist request, we are unable to bring you live #ReadingFestival coverage of Kendrick Lamar’s set.”
Earlier in the day, the Beeb had shown sets from fellow main-stage acts Dua Lipa, Panic At The Disco and Sum 41.
Loo-k what’s Kooking
THE KOOKS frontman Luke Pritchard proposed to musician Ellie Rose while she was on the toilet.
In an exclusive chat at Reading Festival, he said: “She didn’t expect it.
She was having a pee and I put on a tux and some Fleetwood Mac.”
Luke announced he is engaged on Friday – just a month after I revealed the couple were an item.
Good job his proposal was early enough to give the festival Portaloos a swerve.
Lipa of faith
NEW Rules were created at Reading Festival on Saturday as Dua Lipa performed at the tradition-ally indie-rock event.
Many were expecting a hostile, half-empty crowd ready to chuck plastic cups in her direction but the pop star drew in by far the biggest and liveliest crowd of the day, bar rapper headliner Kendrick Lamar.

Linkin Park comeback talks after Chester suicide
LINKIN Park’s Mike Shinoda has exclusively revealed the band are in talks to return a year after the tragic death of frontman Chester Bennington.
For his first UK set since Chester’s suicide last July, Mike took to the main stage to perform songs from his recently released solo debut, Post Traumatic.
He said: “We’ve been talking. As soon as there’s something to announce, we’ll announce it.”
Millionaires in dud draw
LOGAN Paul and KSI squared up for a boxing match billed as the “biggest event in internet history” on Saturday.
Supporters of the YouTube personalities paid hundreds of pounds for a ticket to the Manchester Arena and more than 750,000 forked out £7.50 a head to watch the event as it was livestreamed.

The bout was intended to settle months of internet beef between Logan, a comedy video-blogger, and KSI, a London video-gamer, but ended in a dud draw.
Despite not airing on mainstream telly, it grossed a whopping £115million, making it the most momentous example of online youth culture clout to date, as most fans are under 30.
Both stars, who despite a string of controversies have a combined net worth of over £15million, have now vowed to have a rematch, expected to take place next year.
What can I say . . . knock yourselves out, lads. Please.
