Rochelle to host ITV’s Xtra Factor

RochXtraFactor

It’s Official! Our very own Rochelle has been picked to present the ITV2 X-Factor spin-off show the Xtra Factor!

Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes is the new host of The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, where she has been partnered with Kiss FM DJ Melvin Odoom.

The pair will be taking over slots once held by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, who have been promoted to hosts of the main ITV talent show.

This year’s X Factor will see wholesale changes, with Louis Walsh, Mel B and Dermot O’Leary departing.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are the only faces returning.

The judging panel will be completed by newcomers Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, who was poached from BBC One’s The Voice.

Coincidentally, Humes’ husband is former JLS singer Marvin Humes, who hosts the BBC’s rival talent show.

The couple are regular stand-in presenters together on ITV’s This Morning, while Rochelle also fronted ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK.

Odoom has worked on Kiss FM’s breakfast show, alongside co-host Rickie Haywood-Williams, as well as presenting The Brit Awards for ITV2.

The Xtra Factor is a companion show to the main weekend broadcasts, and follows the backstage action, as well as chatting with judges and contestants.

Humes 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.”


My Heart Takes Over Chart Position & Xtra Factor

@thesaturdays brand new single My Heart Takes Over debuts in the UK Singles chart this week at Number 15. It’s sadly their first single not to debut inside the UK Top 10 since the release of Work back in the summer of 2009. You can still buy the single to support it, and remember the new album On Your Radar is out in a matter of hours!!

The girls where supposedly appearing on the Xtra Factor tonight to perform My Heart Takes Over and no doubt get a last bit of promo in for the album – which is released very shortly – and now it seems they aren’t …. We’ll see how this develops … no doubt we’ll find out soon enough to why it didn’t happen!


The Saturdays on Xtra Factor

The girls appeared on The Xtra Factor on Saturday evening, sorry for the delay in getting it on the site, I was going to do it yesterday evening but I forgot, so here it is, enjoy 🙂

Reminder that the girls are on Ghosthunting With The Saturdays this evening at 9pm … please be aware this show doesn’t end until 11pm so it will more than likely be on the site tomorrow rather than tonight.
