Who is Louis Tomlinson, how old is he and what is his background?
Louis Tomlinson is a 26-year-old singer and member of the boy band phenomenon One Direction, formed on The X Factor.
The Robbie Williams fan was born in Doncaster and used to work as a waiter and a cinema assistant while re-taking his A-levels.
After performing in Sixth Form shows, Louis turned to acting and had roles in James Corden drama Fat Friends and school-set soap Waterloo Road, as well as ITV movie If I Had You.
In 2009 he auditioned for The X Factor but did not make it past the off-screen audition for producers, though he vowed to return.
Then during his 2010 his appearance on the show, stardom beckoned.
Though he failed to reach the Boys category, guest judge Nicole Scherzinger suggested putting him into a band with four other lads – Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne.
Styles came up with the name One Direction and they practiced as a group for two weeks before the live shows, and ultimately they came third in the contest.
Since then the group has had huge success, mainly down to their popularity in the States, and are currently on hiatus, with Malik having left the group in March 2015.
Louis with his beloved mum Jo
Louis released his first solo single – dance track Just Hold On – in December 2016, the same month he lost his mum Johannah Deakin to leukaemia.
His second solo track Back To You was released in July 2017.
Louis is estranged from his biological father Troy Austin, who split from his mother when Louis was five.
He has four half-sisters from his mother’s second marriage to Mark Tomlinson, though he divorced Jo while Louis was on The X Factor.
Does Louis Tomlinson have children and what is his net worth?
A huge media and fan storm surrounded the news Louis was to become a father in 2015.
Briana Jungwirth, an LA stylist who Louis had a brief fling with in May 2015, was the expectant mother.
She gave birth to Freddie in January 2016.
Louis and Briana have not been on the most friendly terms since the baby arrived but reports claim they “keep things amicable” for Freddie’s sake.
Freddie is now two-years-old and Louis occasionally posts online updates from their time together.
As of 2017, it is estimated that Louis is worth £40m.

Is Louis Tomlinson single?
In February 2017 Louis got back with his ex-girlfriend Eleanor Calder after briefly dating US actress Danielle Campbell.
Prior to having a baby with Briana Jungwirth, he was dating Londoner Eleanor for three years.
Louis has also had to contend with an ever-mutating creation known as “Larry” – an imaginary romance between him and Harry Styles, which has spawned thousands of fan-written stories.
Eleanor Calder is back with Louis after they were apart for two years
What else do we know about Louis?
Louis has said many humble things about his role in One Direction, praising the other members’ qualities while playing down his own.
He recently told The Observer he felt he was the most “forgettable” one in the band and contributed the least.
In a chat with Bizarre Editor Dan Wootton, he revealed it was difficult to accept that One Direction were going to break up, but that it had been Harry’s decision. However, he now thinks it was the right thing to do to split for a few years – as long as there is a reunion somewhere down the line.
In 2013 he was signed as a footballer by Doncaster Rovers, where he used to work as a waiter, on a non-contract basis.
Louis was involved in an altercation with a paparazzi snapper at an airport in 2017 but it was later decided that he would not be charged.

When did he become a judge on the X Factor?
Louis first served as a guest X Factor judge in 2015 and went into talks with Simon Cowell about replacing Nick Grimshaw – but was knocked back when Louis Walsh got the role.
Despite this, he always remained a hit with fans and after Louis Walsh departed in June, Simon became keen once more to add the One Direction star to his judging line-up.
Louis was finally unveiled as part of the new look panel in July alongside former idol Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field.

At the show’s first press conference, Louis explained:  “I’ve always been interested in development it’s really exciting for me. It just makes a lot of sense for me.”
He also hinted his One Direction co-stars could join him at Judges’ Houses this year.

X Factor 2018 — why didn’t Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger return to the judging panel for this year’s series?

THE X Factor returned for 2018 – minus Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne.
But why did they quit, and who replaced them?
How it used to be! This is what The X Factor panel looked like back in 2017
Why did Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne leave the show?
The X Factor, thanks to its dwindling ratings over the past few years, has undergone a dramatic shake-up in a bid to keep up with its rival Strictly Come Dancing.
It’s has been given a multi-million-pound make-over in what’s reportedly the most expensive shake-up to date, according to The Mirror.
Head judge Simon Cowell has spared no expense on the new line-up by roping in Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and Ayda Field as new judges.
The husband-and-wife duo are said to have signed a deal worth £10 million, and Louis, 26, is believed to be making £4 million.
The massive salary packages, plus playing out the contracts of former judges Louis Walsh, 65, and Sharon Osbourne, 65, has made this the priciest series yet, according to The Mirror.
Nicole Scherzinger was one of the first judges to be shown the door
Nicole Scherzinger
In April this year, The Sun revealed that Simon had axed former Pussycat Doll Nicole from the panel.
A source said at the time: “Nicole was a passionate judge but has no contract and won’t be back this year in order to bring in fresh blood.”
She was replaced by former One Direction heartthrob Louis Tomlinson.
Louis announced his departure earlier this year

Louis Walsh
Despite being on the show from the very beginning, Louis Walsh decided enough was enough and he moved on to pastures new.
He had been the longest running judge on The X Factor, appearing on all bar one series since the show began in 2004.
He said in a statement, released in June this year: “I’ve had a fantastic 13 years on The X Factor but the show needs a change and I’m ready to leave.
“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!”
He was replaced by Robbie Williams and his wife, Ayda Field.
Sharon is returning for the live shows
Sharon Osbourne
It was initially revealed that Sharon will return for the live shows.
Speaking about her new position, Sharon said: “I can’t wait to get back to the judges’ desk. I love the new format.”
However, she then quit the show.
Speaking with The Sun, Sharon said:
“I’m not going to be quiet for anyone. I’m at the age where I have earned the right to say what I want.
“I’m not running for Parliament and if I offend people, fine, then don’t listen, don’t read.
“They say there’s three sides to every story — their side, your side and the truth. Well, here’s my side. I have nothing to hide.”

What is Robbie Williams’ net worth, how many kids does he have and will he tour in 2018?

ROBBIE Williams’ singing career has spanned over two decades, and even now he’s undoubtedly one of the biggest names in pop.
From his 90s rise to fame to his latest gig as an X Factor judge, here is everything you need to know about Robbie…
Fame Flynet Robbie Williams first rose to fame through chart-topping boyband Take That[/caption]
Who is Robbie Williams?
Robbie Williams is a 44-year-old British singer who rose to fame through Take That and later enjoyed success as a solo artist.
He has received a record-breaking 18 Brit Awards after winning his first back in 1998.
In 2017 he also picked up the Brits Icon award.
Robbie is actively involved in Soccer Aid for UNICEF and returned to captain England again in 2018.

PA:Press Association He has received a record-breaking 18 Brit Awards[/caption]
Why did Robbie Williams quit Take That?
Robbie Williams has quit Take That twice – back in 1995 and again in less dramatic fashion in 2011.
Dedicated Take That fans were left sobbing in the mid-90s when it was announced that Robbie would be leaving the band.
He left after he was given an ultimatum by the rest of the Take That members to either clean up his act or quit, as drink and drugs began to control his life.
But, in the tell-all documentary Take That: Look Back, Don’t Stare, Robbie revealed the extent of his bitter rivalry with Gary Barlow.
He said: “My problem has always been with Gary. It was always with Gary.
“I wanted to crush him. I wanted to crush the memory of the band – and I didn’t let go.
“You know, even when he was down, I didn’t let go. And for that, I sincerely apologise.”
Robbie rejoined the band in 2009 but left again in 2011 after signing a solo record deal with Universal Music.
At the time he told The Sun: “The gigs have been absolutely amazing – the best period of my career so far with those boys. Sharing it with somebody is much better than doing it by yourself, but then ego, want, need and a whole heap of other things kick in.
“And you start preparing for your own tour… and the other boys are going away for a bit and I don’t really know what’s on the cards with them. But we have to ride again, we have to – it’s too much fun.”
Robbie’s songs with Take That include Everything Changes, Could It Be Magic and Relight My Fire (featuring Lulu).

What is Robbie Williams’ net worth?
Robbie’s net worth is estimated to be around £155million.
This is through his record album sales, tours, and various businesses.
Last year, he and his wife Ayda Field moved into their £17 million Kensington mansion that used to belong to film director Michael Winner.
In 2016, he also revealed that he paid himself £14 million as well as another £2.7million in profits through his business Farrell Music Limited.
He earned most of his money through his Let Me Entertain You worldwide tour comprised of 40 dates.
The same year, Robbie also bagged a cool £1.6million for singing at the wedding of the daughter of oil magnate Rashid Sardarov.

They have three children together: Theodora, Charlton and Colette.
In September 2018, the couple shocked their fans with their third baby Colette Josephine Williams, who was carried by a surrogate mother.
Ayda caused quite a stir when she revealed she sometimes faked orgasms.
The Take That star later admitted he had faked one before too.

Will Robbie be going on tour?
Fans are wondering if Robbie will be touring in 2019 after new boss Simon Cowell let slip that he’s working on new material.
Despite currently being on hiatus from his Heavy Entertainment Tour, which will continue in November throughout South America, the Rock DJ singer is keeping busy.
In an X Factor press conference, Simon Cowell let it slip that Robbie has some more music on the way. “The exciting thing is Louis has new music coming out, Robbie’s got new music coming out,” the judge said, according to the Radio Times.
Robbie tends to tour after he releases an album, so chances look good – despite no official announcement.
What are Robbie Williams’ hit songs?
According to the British Phonographic Industry, Robbie has been certified for 19.8 million albums and 6.4 million singles in the UK as a solo artist.
He is also one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold 75 million records worldwide.

Who is Giovanni Spano? X Factor 2018 star through to Judge’s Houses and West End performer

Meet Giovanni Spano – he made it through the audition stage after a controversial decision, and is now on his way to judges houses.
Giovanni Spano is a singer from Ruislip in West LondonRex Features
Who is Giovanni Spano?
Giovanni Spano was born in 1985, in Ruislip, West London.
From a very young age he knew that music and especially rock was his calling.

“Music is music and if something captures you then you’re in.
“It captures the soul and hopefully I get some of these teenyboppers rocking out. Hopefully everybody dances.”
During his audition Giovanni failed to impress Simon and the rest of the panel with his flat rendition of Gimme Some Lovin’ by The Spencer Davis Group.
But Giovanni was granted a second chance by Simon and then sung Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls – earning him three yes votes and getting him through to the next round.
Some viewers claimed this was a ‘fix’ and rushed to Twitter to complain about the decision to allow him through.
His performance in the Six Chair Challenge takes him through to judges houses, and he’s praised for bringing something different to the show.

Who is Scarlett Lee?
Scarlett Lee is a 20-year-old make up artist from Surrey.
The aspiring singer made it through the first round of auditions on The X Factor 2017 but raised eyebrows with her effort.
During her audition, the singer appeared to have applied some very deep fake tan, which she accentuated with bright orange eyeshadow, some bright highlighter, and deep purple lip liner.
Scarlett was controversially axed last year at the six chair challenge by Sharon Osbourne but sailed through the auditions this time around after charming the new panel.
She was the last to perform during the Six Chair Challenge, and Simon said he wanted to give her a seat, leading to a sing-off.
She has now toned down her bold makeup, hair and opted for a demure outfit as she faced Simon Cowell, Robbie Williams, Louis Tomlinson and Ayda Field.

How did Scarlett Lee react to comments about her fake tan?
The 20-year-old make-up artist exclusively told Sun Online: “I never had tan on. I am genuinely dark, but the cameras made me look so much darker then what I actually was.”
She continued: “I went and bought make-up and foundation for the TV and it just went horribly wrong. It made me look even darker.”
One viewer tweeted: “Yikes! That’s so much orange make up. Hiding her lovely face.”
Another added: “Give her some exfoliator to get a couple layers of tan off and she would be so good.”
Scarlett revealed she had found the response amusing as she said: “The response has made me laugh, it’s so funny.
“I’ve just been saying, ‘orange is my favourite colour’ and ‘I love oranges’… I’d rather people pick on me as a person than be nasty about everything else.”
She added: “You can’t go onto the X Factor and think you’re perfect and think everything will go right.”
