X Factor fans seem to be loving the new judging line-up, consisting of Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell

The dynamic quartet have seen their fair share of acts already, but there’s one on tonight’s show which left Robbie, 44, and Simon, 58, at loggerheads. 

Richard Ryan was at the auditions with his nan, explaining how everything he was wearing was from her. 

He took to the stage in denim blue jeans, brown shoes and a multi-coloured floral shirt.

Richard finished off the look with a dark brown floral jacked to match the shirt. 

He appeared on the stage and seemed fairly quiet and reserved, explaining he needed a bit of entertainment to help him. 

Richard did seem pretty confident as he told Robbie he would like some advice from him in order to create a rousing performance. 

However, he shocked the judges as he performed a rousing rendition of I Believe In A Thing Called Love.

The singer made sure to hit all the high notes as he performed The Darkness hit. 

At the end of the performance, Robbie joked: “Richard, straddling the line between c***y and over confidence is something I’ve struggled to do myself.

“But I believe you’ve managed it excellently,” Robbie laughed. 

He continued seriously, added: “You said if only you had some of the things I have, well I want your voice!”

Richard gushed how it was a dream come true hearing such words from the Angels hitmaker. 

Ayda confirmed what Robbie said, explaining how he was a “lovely chap” with a “lovely smile”. 

But Simon was more scathing, telling Richard: “You don’t sound like you look. If this is where you want to go musically, personally I think that’s a big mistake.”

He continued: “I mean what are you in real life, a mouse or a lion?”

Richard’s answer left the judges stunned, telling them: “I’m an on-call firefighter.”

Robbie couldn’t help but yell “in your face” at Simon for the revelation. 

But will Richard get through? Viewers will have to tune in to the show to find out. 

The X Factor continues tonight on ITV at 8pm.
