The 100-million-dollar bidding war to sign Robbie Williams seems to be heating up as the RCA label are doing everything to get him aboard.

The Sony Stable recently appointed Chris Briggs, the A&R veteran who rescued Robbie”s career from failure in its early days.

Briggs was the one who put Williams in touch with songwriter Guy Chambers – the pair came up with a string of hits including the career-saving Angels.

“RCA have played a blinder by getting Chris on board,” The Sun quoted an industry source as saying.

“He”s one of the most significant figures in Robbie”s life and it”s sure to influence his decision whether he signs with them,” the source added.

Another smart move by RCA was to hire Oz singer Sia – who is represented by Williams’ management.

Williams however has another 18 busy months ahead of him and in no hurry to make a decision.

Robbie Williams reuniting with Take That is set to net the band a whopping 75 million pounds from sales and tour dates.

However, Robbie”s record-breaking contract with EMI, which he signed for a reported 80 million pounds in 2002, is still up in October.

And sources believe that he could make even more on a new deal as betting is underway on whether the group will have a Christmas number one.

Multi-national record labels including Universal and Sony have already begun negotiations with Robbie”s management.

“Signing Robbie Williams is the holy grail for labels at the moment,” the Sun quoted an industry source as saying.

“He”s already struck the biggest record deal in history, so whatever he is offered will have to compare favorably to that.

“He could be the first British artist to ever land a £100million deal,” the source added.

Robbie Williams’ fiancée Ayda Field has walked out on the singer till he gets over his football craze.

Field got furious after Sunday”s clash between Algeria and Slovenia and decided to stay with her mum Gwen and told him she won’t be coming back till the footie gets back to normal.

“Robbie”s wife-to-be decided she could not take any more after three days of football,” the Sun quoted a source, as saying.

The insider added: “She has moved out of his mansion and gone back to live with her mum until the World Cup is over.

“Ayda said she just has to get some peace. Robbie was away but he still talked non-stop about the games. And now he is back he has invited his gang of football mates over to his house to watch the rest of the matches in his home cinema.

“Ayda was dreading a house full of blokes chanting Three Lions and blowing vuvuzelas – so she”s legged it.”

Gary Barlow has said that it’s inevitable that Robbie Williams will rejoin ‘Take That’.

According to reports, Robbie is planning to work again with the group he left in 1995.

Earlier, in a Radio 2 interview, Williams said he and the group have been in the studio together, although it is unclear whether anything from the session will see the light of day. Also, last year they shared a stage at a Children In Need concert, reports The Mirror.

But while speaking to pupils at Brine Leas High School, in Nantwich, Cheshire, Barlow suggested he foresaw a reunion.

“We”ll see. I think it”s inevitable one day we”ll get back together,” Barlow said when asked on the issue.

Former Take That member Robbie Williams is said to be very eager to sign up as a co-judge on ‘The X Factor’.

Williams, 36, could land himself the deal as sources have revealed that there have been high-level talks.

“Robbie is the number one choice for judge,” the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.

“His common touch will make him a hit with fans,” the source added.

Last year, show boss Simon Cowell, 50, had said that Williams would be perfect for the panel, which also includes Cheryl Cole, 26, and Louis Walsh, 57.

“He’s fun, he’s got good instincts and he doesn’t take himself too seriously,” he had stated.

But Cowell’s spokesman has denied that any decision has been made.

“Anything being written about judges at this stage is complete and utter speculation,” he added.

Robbie Williams and his management firm are at odds over plans for a tour at the end of 2010 – while the singer has not made up his mind if he wants to hit the road, bosses are already working out the details of the proposed tour, it has emerged.

Williams, 36, is being asked to promote his latest record Reality Killed the Video Star starting in November, but he has not given a nod to the idea as yet.

“Tempers are fraying because Robbie is non-commital at the moment,” the Sun quoted an insider, as saying.

The source added: “He”s made no secret that he doesn”t want to tour this time round but his management firm, IE Management, are keen to get him out after such a successful comeback.

“He is beginning to come round to the idea but is still unsure.

“People are becoming restless.”

During his last tour in 2006 Williams was struggling with drug addiction and had to cancel a series of gigs.

And he still seems to be unsure if people will watch him perform.

Last week Williams was asking fans at a show organised by Heart radio as part of Heart Love Music Live: “Who wants to see me on tour? I might do one later this year.

“Would any of you come and see me? If I do do it, I won”t be on drugs this time.”

Robbie Williams has postponed his marriage with girlfriend Ayda Field again, after the details of the wedding got leaked, sources say.

The singer had first cancelled plan Valentine”s Day marriage plan after the date was disclosed.

Since then he has been forced to cancel two more dates.

Now, Williams is apparently trying to find out the source of the leaks.

“Robbie and Ayda are desperate to marry and start a new domesticated life together,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

The insider added: “But when their first day, February 14th, escaped into the public domain, Rob hit the roof. He has played out his relationship with Ayda largely behind closed doors and wanted it to stay that way.

“They don”t want a huge showbiz wedding with glossy magazines in attendance and flashbulbs going off.

“So it is vitally important to both of them that it stays private with only a handful of people knowing where and when the event will be.

“Two other dates were suggested almost as a test to see if and when they got leaked. He is determined to find the culprit – and cull him or her from their circle of friends.”

Meanwhile, Field can”t wait to get married to the ”Bodies” hitmaker.

She reportedly said: “I can”t wait to marry him. We”re so in love, it”s a case of the sooner the better.”

They are now expected to wed at year-end in a private ceremony in LA.
