Robbie Williams and wife considering chat show deal - report

Robbie Williams is reportedly planning to "take a crack" at the small screen, hosting a chat show alongside wife Ayda Field.

Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field are reportedly considering hosting a chat show together.

The former Take That singer and his American actress spouse are said to be planning to front a new television programme following a hugely successful 2016.

While Robbie has countless fans through his boy band days and his solo career, Ayda has won over viewers with her outspoken attitude on ITV lunchtime show Loose Women.

And now, the duo are allegedly thinking about capitalising on their joint successes by teaming up on a show together.

“Robbie has a huge fan base and Ayda has become hugely popular since joining Loose Women," a source told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "They have a bond which their followers love but they aren’t afraid to take the mick out of each other.

"Robbie knows Ayda wants to make it in TV and it’s something he’s always fancied a crack at. It’d be a surefire hit."

The publication reports the pair could even take on the mantle of Britain's most beloved presenting couples, taking the mantle from Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, with the insider adding: "Richard and Judy became an institution hosting This Morning and later on, their own show. Robbie and Ayda could easily be even more successful. They’re a great pairing."

According to The Sun, the show concept "is now set to spark a massive bidding war between the major channels".

Robbie frequently makes surprise appearances on Loose Women when Ayda is on the panel, and recently hit headlines when he dashed onto the set after hearing his spouse admit that she sometimes fakes orgasms.

However, he admitted during a Facebook Live chat earlier this month (Dec16), that the remark is just one example of how he and Ayda are “classic over sharers".

"I’m not embarrassed by anything she says. Me and Ayda are classic over sharers," he smiled. "So she, apparently a few times, has faked an orgasm. That’s all right by me. It’s just a loving way to say, ‘You can stop now’."
