Caroline Flack and Olly Murs return to host Xtra Factor 2012

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.
