The X Factor's judging line-up is a hotly debated subject every year, especially when major changes are set to come.
The latest rumour is that Robbie Williams is set to join Simon Cowell on the ITV panel.
And just as an extra little twist, his wife – Loose Women panellist Ayda Field – could also be mentoring alongside him.
It's rumoured that the mum of two is set to join her husband to oversee the wannabe singers.
But viewers aren't sure what Ayda would actually bring to the panel, considering she's not known for having any notable music knowledge or expertise.
Instead, she first found fame on the US soap Days of Our Lives, before marrying Robbie in 2010 and joining Loose Women in 2016.
Taking to Twitter, many shared their views about Ayda possibly joining the panel.
Nope won’t be watching anyway. She is not in the music industry her only experience is from being married to Robbie that would be like me going to do an operation just because I was married to a surgeon what could go wrong with that- Lyn McAuley (@Lyn230) June 13, 2018
WTF?! Ayda has not built up a massive following on @loosewomen and has enough days to justify cross promotion. Robbie is a safe pair of hands but he’s 2008 not 2018. I liked 1D boys or Craig David more as options. Either way X Factor is a sinking ship with the Strictly battle https://t.co/yYuYovvtq3- Johnny Seifert (@JohnnySeifert) June 12, 2018
Robbie yes but not Ayda. Only because she has no music experience. She is a lovely lady. XxX- Di Healey ⚽💞 (@saintylgirl1972) June 13, 2018
Ava Field's only qualifications to judge the X Factor are that she's married to Robbie Williams. Nice to see the X Factor judge casting process is so thorough... #XFactor- Sean the Mondasian Cyberman (@WhoPotterVian) June 13, 2018
It's annoying because Robbie Williams would make a great judge (I could see him being similar to David Walliams on BGT) but Ayda Field would make a mockery of the show. How can she judge a singing show when she's neither a singer or some sort of music manager?- Sean the Mondasian Cyberman (@WhoPotterVian) June 13, 2018
The X Factor could look very different when it returns to ITV later this year.
Louis Walsh has already announced he is leaving the panel after working on and off for 13 years.
"I've had a fantastic 13 years on The X Factor but the show needs a change and I'm ready to leave," he said.
"I'm looking forward to another series of Ireland's Got Talent, going back to my day job as a manager, writing my memoirs and seeing the world."
Nicole Scherzinger is also rumoured to be stepping down as a judge, while Sharon Osbourne will be taking a scaled-down role.
