Olly Murs comes back for Xtra Factor 2011


Olly Murs is coming back this year for X Factor!

However, this time, he’ll be doing the presenting. The 2009 finalist will be co-hosting with TV presenter Caroline Flack.

Both hosts replaced Xtra Factor’s Konnie Huq from last year after mixed reviews from the viewers. The 35-year-old former Blue Peter presenter made her debut hosting the X Factor sister show last year, but failed to match the popularity of previous presenter Holly Willoughby.

Olly told The Sun that he thinks Konnie was “great” but “Caroline and I can bring a more personal touch and get to know the contestants really well like Dermot does.” He was meant for the X Factor.

Do you think Olly Murs is a better fit than Konnie Huq on the Xtra Factor? Let us know in the comments section below!

Tune in this autumn to watch Series 8 of X Factor UK on ITV1 and Xtra Factor on ITV2.
