Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will replace Dermot O'Leary on The X Factor 2015, it's been officially confirmed.

Yes, this isn't yet another rumour from a source or insider, ITV has tonight officially announced that former Xtra Factor duo Olly and Caroline WILL be fronting the series this year.

And these are the words Olly had to say about it all: “I'm incredibly excited and proud to be returning to The X Factor alongside Caroline.

"I love the show and it kick-started my career in music which has given me the opportunity to do what I love. I already have the best job in the world and it's about to get better - I can't wait to get started and be part of finding some amazing new talent!”

Caroline Flack, who will be a very busy lady this summer also presenting ITV2's Love Island, added: "I'm beyond excited about presenting The X Factor with Olly. To have the privilege of doing this with someone who makes me laugh out loud is a massive bonus!

“I'm also incredibly lucky to have the best tips and support from my showbiz big brother Dermot. I'm not sure how I can live up to his long term residency but I know I can't let him down!"

Even Simon Cowell has got involved in the announcement, saying: “I am absolutely delighted Caroline and Olly are both returning to The X Factor.

"When they were on Xtra together, they were a brilliant double act. Since then, Caroline’s gone from strength to strength – and Olly has become one of Britain’s biggest stars. So now I’m looking forward to them fronting the main show."

Now as for The X Factor 2015 judges, a spokesperson told us: "Further details about this year’s X Factor including the judging panel will be announced in due course."
