We’re delighted to announce that Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are to be the new presenters of The X Factor, becoming the first ever duo to host the hit singing show.
Olly and Caroline will bring their chemistry and charm to the show, having previously co-hosted The Xtra Factor on ITV2. They will be on hand at every stage of the audition process to congratulate and console the budding singers who are vying to be the next big superstar. They will also be tasked with keeping the judges in order, once the live shows start.

We’d like to thank Dermot for eight brilliant years at the helm of The X Factor.
He has been a fantastic host, masterfully keeping the show on the road, supporting the contestants throughout the competition and keeping the Judges in check. We will miss him (and his dance moves). We wish him all the best for the future.
An announcement on the host for the new series will be made in due course.
