Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom have been announced as this year's hosts of The X Factor spin-off, The Xtra Factor.

The former Saturdays singer and KISS FM DJ will replace Sarah-Jane Crawford on the ITV2 show.

Rochelle said: "I have watched The Xtra Factor for years so I am beyond excited about joining such a brilliant team and getting to work with my old friend Melvin makes it even better.

"I also can’t wait to meet the contestants and be a part of their X Factor experience.”

Melvin, who has co-hosted The KISS FM breakfast show for eight years alongside Rickie Haywood Williams, added: "To get to present The Xtra Factor is a dream for me.

"We are there to support the contestants and have fun – I’m really looking forward to it!”

The X Factor is back in autumn with Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora joining judges Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell.
