Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will return to host The Xtra Factor 2012.
Caroline Flack, one of the country’s most sought after TV presenters and Olly Murs, a double platinum selling artist are back to host the popular ITV2 sister show to The X Factor, ITV have confirmed.
Caroline will set off on the auditions tour – which begins tomorrow in Liverpool – alone as Olly is touring in America, but he’ll be back for the Live Shows in the autumn.
“I had a fantastic time on The Xtra Factor last year with my TV husband Olly, so, I can’t wait to get started on the show again,” said Caroline.
“Even though Olly and I won’t be reunited in person until the live shows we will be together all the way in spirit, he’s bound to be calling me mid-interview to check what has been happening on the Judges tour to ensure he doesn’t miss out on any crucial gossip!”
Olly added: “I can’t wait to get back to The Xtra Factor this year, especially now my partner in crime Caroline is confirmed to be joining me. I know it’s going to be a great year and we’ll be grilling the judges and contestants more than ever before.”
The X Factor and The Xtra Factor return to ITV1 and ITV2 later this year.
