Xtra Factor hosts could be next to get the X Factor axe

Current Xtra Factor hosts Melvin Odoom and Rochelle Humes could be the next to leave The X Factor in this year's big shake up.

Main show hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs as well as judge Nick Grimshaw have already all confirmed their departures.

And while Rochelle and Mevlin seemed to work very well on the Xtra Factor they too could be going.

While no decisions have been made just yet, The Sun newspaper reports that talks have been taking place about a possible replacement for the pair.

The tabloid says that Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp, son of Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, has been in discussions with ITV about hosting the ITV2 spin-off show.

"Obviously we have a lot of talks about it. We’ve had a lot of talks in the past year about Xtra Factor so we’ll see," Roman told the newspaper. “For me, that’s the next step.”

He added: “It’s nice to know these big shows I look up to are watching and thinking about putting me in that show.

“Having companies like ITV ask if you’re interested in doing these types of shows, like Xtra Factor, it’s nice, it’s really nice.”

An X Factor insider is quoted by the publication as saying: "Rochelle and Melvin did a great job last year. No decisions have been taken on what’s going to happen this year.”

It would be a shame to lose Melvin and Rochelle who we really enjoyed watching last year.

In fact, of all the things about the The X Factor, the Xtra Factor has always been highlight and a very well produced show even when the main programme misses the mark.
