The X Factor

Caroline Flack has been confirmed to return as co-host of The Xtra Factor.

The X Factor’s spin-off show confirmed the news today, with Caroline set to gain a new co-presenter.

Comedian Matt Richardson will join the show as a replacement to Olly Murs. Olly announced earlier this year that he wouldn’t be back for the new series, instead he’ll be pursuing his dream of breaking the USA!

Matt is a 21 year old comedian, who has been successful on the stand-up comedy circuit for the past two years.

There will be a few changes to The X Factor this year, with the departure of Tulisa Contostavlos, and the return of Sharon Osbourne to the judging panel.

Caroline said of her new co-host: “I’m really excited to be hosting Xtra Factor for the third year! Of course I’m going to miss Olly every day, but I am very proud that his music is doing so well all around the world. I really feel that Matt will bring something completely different to the show. He’s a real find, he makes me laugh and it’s great to introduce new talent. I can’t wait to get started.”

Matt said: “I cannot describe how excited I am to be joining The Xtra Factor. Working with Caroline and the rest of the team will be an incredible experience and I will do my best to be as good as I possibly can, because I’m never going to be as gorgeous as Olly Murs.”

The X Factor and The Xtra Factor return to ITV and ITV2 this autumn
