X Factor 2014: Sarah-Jane Crawford 'to get co host for live shows'

Sarah-Jane Crawford

New Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford could get a co-host for the live shows, according to reports.

Even though we reckon she's doing more than fine on her own, it's claimed that show bosses reckon the Radio 1Xtra DJ could do with a helping fan when the live finals roll around next month.

And with former host Caroline Flack occupied on Strictly Come Dancing, it's suggested that former finalist turned Big Brother's Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark could be in the running.

He'd host the ITV2 spin-off alongside Sarah-Jane when the live stage of the competition kicks off from the second week of October.

Although the move is apparently not because telly chiefs don't have faith in Sarah.

A source said: "It is not a comment on Sarah-Jane.

"The live shows are difficult and there have been preliminary discussions about adding a co-host to help."

The supposed X Factor insider added: "It really worked when Caroline presented with Olly Murs so it would be great to have that sort of chemistry again."

For now you can catch Sarah-Jane on the Xtra Factor on ITV2 every Saturday and Sunday night straight after the ITV programme.

This year we reckon it's been better than main show itself.
