It's time to say goodbye to the Xtra Factor!
It has just been confirmed that the spin-off show will not be coming back this year, with reports indicating it has been going downhill for years now.
The show, which was most recently presented by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson, is instead going to move online, and will feature short clips and extra content.

Reports also suggest that it had nothing to do with the two presenters – the format was just not working anymore.
Rylan took to Twitter earlier today to tell his followers: "After an amazing series, I just want to say what an honour it was to finally host The Xtra Factor alongside the lovely Matt and naughty scamp Roman.
"It was always a one year gig (LOLS) and a full 360 for me and I'm grateful I had that opportunity.
"I propose a wake alongside Matt, Roman, Rochelle, Melvin, Sarah, MattR, Caroline, Olly, Konnie, Fearne, Holly & Ben where we can all wear black and mourn as one. God bless Xtra and all who sailed her. Sleep well girl x."

Matt also took to social media to share his thoughts: "I wanted to write a quick something about my time on Xtra Factor, and the news it's not coming back this year…
"I had an absolute blast working on the show – it's honestly the most fun I've ever had at work, and it's thanks to the best production team in the world.
"Xtra had been on the decline for a few years, but we pulled out all the stops to make a show I am massively proud of.
"The feedback was amazing, and as a fan of The X Factor, it was a joy to be involved in some small way. I loved working with Rylan and Roman, and I've no doubt we'll get to do something fun together in the future.

"There aren't many shows on telly that are live and silly, but I'm so glad I got to sink my teeth into this one."
Richard Holloway, managing director at Thames TV, who makes The X Factor, said: "In the past year there has been an increase in digital engagement and online audiences around The X Factor.
"In light of this, ITV's strategy to focus their efforts on digital means The Xtra Factor on linear television has come to its natural end."
Ah, we'll miss it.
