Former Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack has revealed she's yet to speak to Simon Cowell since getting the axe.
But she insisted that the pair were "good friends" and were on "good terms".
"It's something new and it's good to keep changing things. It's good for them as well at Xtra Factor because that's how X Factor works, you have to keep updating and it was time for them to get someone in, definitely."
Speaking to BANG! Showbiz, Caroline said: "X Factor job is generally talking about other people, you bring out the best in them but suddenly you're learning a whole new skill and in front of millions of people.
"It couldn't be more different. I think change is always good, even if I'm more nervous."
Other names joining Caroline on this year's Strictly Come Dancing line up are Pixie Lott, Frankie Bridge and Thom Evans.
Strictly starts this Sunday at 8PM on BBC One.
