Robbie Williams has responded to Louis Walsh's critical comments about his wife Ayda Field's time on The X Factor last year.
The celebrity couple were both judges on the ITV show last year, though Louis - who is returning for this year's Celebrity series - wasn't terribly complimentary about her in a new interview.
"I thought HE was a brilliant booking, but then he went and brought his wife on the show," he told The Sun. "You don't bring your wife to work.
"He is a brilliant character and judge and with Simon [Cowell] it should have been amazing. It should have been the best panel ever but it just didn't work. There was no X Factor."
He added: "Nicole [Scherzinger] or Sharon [Osbourne] would have been better."
Robbie and Ayda have taken a rather comic approach in their response to Louis's words in a new Instagram clip, as the couple sit in bed together.
After asking what he is doing tomorrow, Robbie tells Ayda: "Work babe," before going on to reveal that he is working with a "legend" called Louis.
As Ayda guesses just which Louis he is referring to, Robbie reveals it is Walsh as they then look at photos on Robbie's laptop.
"Is that the before or after photo?" Ayda asks after Robbie says Louis has "had a bit of work done", the singer joking: "That's Anne Widdicombe... that's him."
Both Robbie and Ayda posted the video with the hashtag "bring your wife to work day". Ouch.
