I expected criticism for my Xtra Factor style, says Konnie Huq

Xtra Factor's Konnie Huq has revealed she expected criticism when she joined the show as host last year, comparing the situation to when Dannii Minogue joined the judging panel in 2007. Speaking amongst many rumours about who will host the 2011 series of the spin off, Konnie added she'd love to return to the show.

Speaking on Channel 5's Vanessa Feltz chat show last week, Konnie revealed: “I hope to go back to the Xtra Factor.

“I expected criticism as it was so different to what I have done before. Dannii Minogue had it too when she first started.”

A number of celebs have been tipped to take over from Konnie on the show, including Sky Sports presenter Georgie Thompson.
