Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are looking almost certain to be hosting The X Factor this year.

It's after Dermot O'Leary quit the show after eight series last month, which we're still not quite over.

Former X Factor finalist - and Xtra Factor host - Olly was quickly tipped to take over, and his former Xtra Factor presenter turned Strictly Come Dancing winner Caroline is expected to join him.

At the weekend Olly basically confirmed the news as he told fans at a gig in Dublin to expect to see him on the telly soon while giving an X-Factor pose.

And now betting has been suspended over the future of this year's X Factor presenting job, according to bookies Ladbrokes.

With favourites Ollie and Caroline both heavily hinting at forthcoming news to share with fans and roles on TV, the bookmakers this morning decided enough is enough and immediately closed the betting.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Olly and Caroline have given their strongest hints yet that a return to X Factor is imminent, leaving us with no option but to pull the plug on the market."

As yet however there's still be no official announcement, with Simon Cowell teasing last week that news would be coming "very soon".
