Olly Murs and Caroline Flack Are The New Xtra Factor 2011 Presenters

Olly Murs

Months of speculation over who would be hosting the Xtra Factor was finally come to an end  as ITV announced that Olly Murs the 2009 X Factor runner-up would join forces with Caroline Flack on the show.

The pair will front the new series of the ITV2 spin-off show after Konnie Huq got the axe earlier this year.

Olly Murs finished The X Factor in second place back in 2009, behind Joe McElderry. Despite narrowly missing out in the final, Olly has gone on to have great success including a number one single and a top 10 debut album.

Caroline Flack has already had experience hosting reality spin off shows, having presented I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of Here!  on ITV2.

Critics have said the paring is a odd choice because Olly Murs have no previous experience in telly presenting. Many believe the  ‘F Factor’ host Matt Edmondson would have been a more obvious choice.

The duo will be in Birmingham for the first auditions of The X Factor with new judges Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow. Louis Walsh will also return to the panel.
