X Factor 2013: Rylan Clark gets spot on this year's Xtra Factor!

Rylan Clark (Big Brother 2013)

Rylan Clark is set to return to The X Factor this year with a presenting role on the Xtra Factor.

While Rylan didn't get the co-hosting spot alongside Caroline Flack, he will be making a regular appearance on the ITV2 spin-off.

The Daily Star reports that Rylan, who currently fronts Channel 5's Big Brother spin-off Bit On The Side, will become a roving reporter for the show.

“Rylan was the one person on The X Factor who everyone was talking about last year and the producers know fans would love to see him back this winter," a source told the newspaper this morning.

The insider added: "He’s got the charm and loves to have a laugh so he will bring out the best in his chats and probably get them to spill a few saucy beans about the X Factor acts.”

This year The Xtra Factor will be hosted by Caroline alongside her new co-host, comic Matt Richardson.

A spokesperson for the ITV2 show commented: “No definite decisions have been made yet on recurring formats or guests on Xtra Factor.”

The X Factor and Xtra Factor are expected to launch later this month on ITV.
