Robbie Williams bore a scarily similar resemblance to Simon Cowell on as he transformed into the music mogul for the Halloween episode of X Factor.

The pop icon, 44, revelled in the spooky time of year by donning a fitted white shirt and boot cut jeans - a signature look for the X Factor boss.

Robbie, introduced by Dermot O'Leary as 'Robbie Cowell', teamed the look with a pair of dark aviator shades, which Simon is rarely seen without, and dyed his hair jet black to mirror his co-stars locks.

Strutting onto the stage alongside his wife Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson and Simon himself, Robbie had clearly also perfected Simon's walk.

Viewers went wild for his new look, with one claiming that the scariest thing so far about Halloween was Robbie's transformation.

Simon had also gone the whole hog for the episode dubbed 'Fright Night', wrapping himself in layers of cloth and transforming into a Mummy.

Ayda and Louis appeared to refrain from fancy dress in favour of opting to wear their standard Saturday night get-ups.

Ayda wowed in a semi-sheer lace number with a statement feathered skirt, which had a daringly high thigh-split up one side.

Her three-tone frock was complemented with a pair of barely-there black heels and accessorised with costume jewellery.

She wore her golden locks in a sleek, straight style, while accentuating her gorgeous features with a coat of glamorous make-up, including a bold red lip.

Saturday's show was pre-recorded during the afternoon in order to fit in with Robbie's hectic schedule.

A source told The Mirror: 'Everyone is frantic behind the scenes....it means the dress rehearsals will kick off at midday – several hours earlier.'

Giving insight into the show's arrangements, the insider continued: 'The show itself will be filmed as live at 4.30pm. It's stressful to say the least but everyone is rallying around to make it a success.'

'They are moving hell and earth to ensure Robbie is on the panel. He is so committed to his acts and the show that he doesn't want to leave them in the lurch and fly off.'

The source also described Robbie as a 'perfectionist' as they claimed he's spent hours with his acts during rehearsals this week.

Dermot also got into the Halloween spirit in a vampire costume, as he announced that the twelve remaining contestants would be battling it out to face another double elimination.

Robbie revealed that Simon kissed him backstage, as Dermot joked that he is the only person he really loves.
