Simon Cowell to delay X Factor broadcast in case Ayda Field swears live on air!

He's worried about one of his judges crossing the line

For anyone who’s been watching this year’s X Factor, you’ll know that new judge Ayda Field doesn’t hold back.

And head judge Simon Cowell is said to be so concerned about that fact, he’s requested a delay on the live X Factor broadcast, in case she swears on air.

Speaking to The Mirror, the music mogul admitted he’s worried about breaching watershed rules, saying: “It’s probably going to be utter chaos. I was thinking about this the other day and we could always do a small delay.”

Ayda, 39, who joined the series this year with husband Robbie Williams, added: “The live shows, Simon can’t edit, and I’m very excited about that. There will be chaos because Rob doesn’t have a filter and I swear a lot.”

The US actress blamed her partner for her bad language, adding: “That’s only because I live with Rob, he’s given me a sailor’s mouth.

“When I met Rob I was a ­respectable woman. 12 years down the line, it’s bleeping this, bleeping that and see you next Tuesday.”

The mother-of-three, who is also a judge alongside former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, has already had to apologise on live TV for swearing.

During an appearance on Loose Women in June, Ayda swore twice, leading her singer husband Robbie, 44, to defend her.

He said: “That’s the thing about my wife – she doesn’t know that a lot of the things she’s saying are English swear words because she lives with me.”

It follows Robbie, 44, speaking out for the first time about his newborn daughter, Coco, saying: “She’s the most chilled baby that we’ve ever had.”

The former Take That singer and Ayda surprised fans by announcing they had welcomed a third child via a surrogate last month.

Robbie – who is already dad to Teddy, six, and Charlie, three – told The Mirror: “Coco Josephine Williams, she’s the most chilled baby that we’ve ever had out of all three of them.

“And it’s interesting, the progression [as] a parent – from the first child where, when they go to sleep, if you hear something two miles away you wanna send somebody two miles away to tell them to shut up.

“Then on the third one, you know, the kids are fighting, the TV’s on and baby stays asleep, and I think, because we’re more chilled, she’s more chilled.”

We can’t wait for the live shows to start. And we don’t even mind the odd naughty word from Ayda…
