Stacey Solomon

Former X Factor 2009 finalist Stacey Solomon is reportedly in talks to present this year's Xtra Factor. The singer, who has gone on to become a big telly star, is set to return to the show that first made her famous to present the ITV2 spin off when it returns in August this year.

Stacey currently hosts surprising ITV1 primetime hit Sing If You Can alongside Keith Lemon. The 21-year-old finished third in the 2009 series behind Olly Murs and Joe McElderry and went on to win I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Last year.


Having fired her old management team however and moving under the wing of Simon Cowell's PR Guru Max Clifford, it looks as though Stacey's career is on the up. The mum-of-one has plans to release a book this month and is also said to be recording an album for release later this year.

Stacey is the latest to be linked to the Xtra Factor presenting role after taking part in talks with show bosses yesterday, according to The Sun.

Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh has also had more talks about the role, while other names linked to the job include Caroline Flack and 'F Factor' host Matt Edmondson.
