Stacey Solomon's dream job is to be X Factor judge after Robbie Williams quits

Despite not winning back in 2009, the mother-of-two came third on the show, and still interviews families on the ITV hit.

But could she be the one to replace Robbie Williams, who recently walked away from the judging panel along with his wife Ayda Field.

The pair have left the show after one season and now sources close to the husband and wife team have admitted that although there has been no fall out with Simon Cowell, the decision ultimately came down to finances.

‘Robbie and Ayda were already on a £10million deal and there was no way we were going to be able to increase that sort of money,’ insiders claimed.

Speaking to The Sun, the source added: ‘They haven’t fallen out with Simon – they were all on holiday together recently – but there are business realities at play.’

The couple released a joint statement on Instagram to break the news to fans, revealing they would not be returning for the 2019 season.

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

‘We’ve got some very big announcements coming soon – but we can’t reveal all yet.’

They added: ‘Sadly as it’s impossible to do everything, 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!’
