We've kept our eye out for all the biggest rumours of the day and served up all the juicy gossip right here...

1. Robbie Williams to join The X Factor?

X Factor bosses are reportedly keen to get Robbie Williams to join the show's judging panel.

Producers want to capitalise on the singers' 'great friendship and rivalry' and hope the pair will help boost ratings.

Speaking to The Sun, a source said, "This is the dream team. We have been looking at the show and thinking the unthinkable.

"Robbie is exactly the right person for the show - but we don't want to lose Gary to get him. We want them both.

"Robbie's people are saying he is too busy to do the show. But we worked around Gary when he first joined the panel and he was touring with Take That and it was fine."

It's thought that Tulisa Contostavlos may be axed from The X Factor to make way for Robbie, with Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger staying on from last year.

2. Taylor Swift on a pub date with Tom Odell?

It looks like Taylor Swift may have moved on from Harry Styles with a fellow Brit!

The singer was spotted by in an East London pub with BRITs Critics' Choice Award winner Tom Odell.

The pair apparently chatted at the bar before moving to a more private table.

They were approached by fans and Taylor spent several minutes chatting with them, before the pair left, together with Taylor's minders.

A source said, "Taylor and Tom looked like they had headed to the East End pub for a bit of a change from the bright lights of the BRITs. The pub, The Florist, in Bethnal Green is a regular haunt for Tom.

"They were deep in conversation (when not talking to fans) and it seemed very much like they were on a date. They seemed really relaxed and she was drinking a pint!

Or maybe she was impressed by the singer's work and wanted to create some music together like she did with Ed Sheeran.

3. Chantelle Houghton to reveal all about Alex Reid!

Chantelle Houghton has claimed that there is "still a lot more" to be revealed about her from fiancé Alex Reid.

Fans who want to know the whole story will have to purchase her upcoming second autobiography for all the details.

Chantelle separated split up with Alex, the father of her 8-month-old daughter Dolly, following a number of well-publicised relationship issues, including a massive row over his "sexual preferences" and his arrest for criminal damage at the Essex home they used to share.

Post break-up, Chantelle accused Alex of having a 'sex dungeon' and claimed that a man ended their romance.

The former Ultimate Big Brother contestant has since announced that even though she and Reid are now "amicable", she still intends to expose more of their secrets in her book.

Speaking to Closer, she said, "There's still a lot more that went on that I haven't revealed. But I'm saving that for my next autobiography.

Houghton went on to describe herself as "very single" and took another swipe at Reid by saying she wants her next boyfriend to be "someone normal".

"I'm letting my best mates choose my next boyfriend," she joked. "I'd love a big traditional wedding, but with the right guy - someone normal."

She continued, "I want another baby too. To be honest, I'd just keep going. At least four kids would be nice."

Houghton released her first autobiography Living The Dream in 2007, shortly before her divorce from Celebrity Big Brother co-star Preston.
