Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are to be the new presenters of The X Factor, replacing Dermot O'Leary and becoming the first ever duo to host the hit singing show.

The pair previously co-hosted The Xtra Factor on ITV2 for two years from 2011. 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.

I'm incredibly excited and proud to be returning to The X Factor alongside Caroline. I love the show and it kick-started my career in music which has given me the opportunity to do what I love. I already have the best job in the world and it's about to get better - I can't wait to get started and be part of finding some amazing new talent.

I'm beyond excited about presenting The X Factor with Olly. To have the privilege of doing this with someone who makes me laugh out loud is a massive bonus.

I'm also incredibly lucky to have the best tips and support from my showbiz big brother Dermot. I'm not sure how I can live up to his long term residency but I know I can't let him down.

The new series of The X Factor returns to ITV in autumn this year and applications for the new series are open now.
