Rochelle Humes and Marvin Odoom confirmed as The Xtra Factor hosts


It has been confirmed that Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom are to be the new hosts of The Xtra Factor, replacing DJ Sarah-Jane Crawford on the ITV spin-off show.

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

Odoom – who co-hosts the KISS FM breakfast show with Rickie Haywood Williams – revealed that he has always been a “massive fan” of The X Factor. “To get to present The Xtra Factor is a dream for me,” he said. “We are there to support the contestants and have fun – I’m really looking forward to it.”

The duo will be backstage at every stage of the competition – from the auditions to judges houses and the live shows. They will also be getting all the gossip from the new judging line up which includes X Factor regulars, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini as well as the newly announced judges, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw.

The X Factor and The Xtra Factor will air later this year on ITV 1 and ITV 2 respectively.
