Robbie Williams ‘made £19.8m in one year’ after quitting X Factor judging role

Former Take That star Robbie Williams made an impressive £19.8million in 2019, it is claimed.

The 46-year-old quit his X Factor judging role at the end of 2018 and went on to make a staggering £54,000 a day throughout 2019, according to new and updated financial statements at Companies House, The Sun has reported.

A big chunk of Robbie's wealth was boosted by the profits from his live stage performances. His show You're Not Famous sold out.

During 2019 he also headlined at the BST festival in Hyde Park just for one night and then he finished the year off with his very own Christmas Party for his fans at Wembley Arena.

On the statements, it reportedly says Robbie makes money "for goods and services net of VAT in relation to the live performances of the artist known as Robbie Williams".

It also revealed that the sales comprised of £14.7 million from Europe and the rest of the world, plus £5.1 million from the UK.

However, after expenses were deducted, it revealed what Robbie actually took home.

The star managed to make a profit of £8.9million, not bad the year after quitting X Factor.

It also states that Robbie and his co-owner, a business called robbiewilliams.com which is his official site, took home £13.6million in "drawings".

Robbie's impressive year comes after he confessed that he needs autocue when singing now because he can't remember the lyrics to some of his own hit songs from over the years.

The star star said that "at some point" he stopped being able to "retain the information about the lyrics".

Speaking on his At Home With the Williamses podcast with Slade star Noddy Holder, who is celebrating the 47th anniversary of his hit Merry Xmas Everybody, the star confessed he can't remember some lyrics.

He recalled how he needs autocue for his songs Angels and Let Me Entertain You.

Robbie said: "At some point I just stopped being able to retain the information about the lyrics in my songs.

"Even things like Angels and the big ones like Let Me Entertain You. I need an autocue now because I can't remember anything any more."
