The new X Factor hosts have FINALLY been confirmed

The new X Factor hosts have officialy been confirmed by Simon Cowell. 

There was a lot of speculation around it but it has now been confirmed that Olly Murs and Caroline Flack will definitely replace Dermot O’Leary on the show.

The former Xtra Factor hosts appear to be very excited about the new role.

Caroline said: “I’m beyond excited about presenting the X Factor with Olly.”

She then went on to add, “To have the privilege of doing this with someone who makes me laugh out loud is a massive bonus.”

Olly also expressed his excitement: “I’m incredibly excited and proud to be returning to the X Factor alongside Caroline.” He then added, “I love the show and it kick-started my career in music which has given me the opportunity to do what I love.”

They both hosted the Xtra Factor in 2011 and 2012 so are familiar with the way the show works.

Olly came second place in the show in 2009.
