There's a seriously awkward moment on tonight's Celebrity Juice when Keith Lemon asks Caroline Flack about Dermot O'Leary replacing her on The X Factor.

You might think that with Caroline on the panel, her and Olly Murs's sudden exits from the ITV talent contest last month after just one series fronting the main show would be the hot topic of discussion.

That's not so, as it turned out that Keith had been banned from talking about The X Factor. However, the mischievous host was never going to take no for an answer, and managed to sneakily slip it in to the conversation.

"You’ve had some big news recently haven’t you? You OK to talk about it?" Keith pondered in footage released to Digital Spy.

"Right here? Right now?" Caroline responded, looking a tad perturbed.

"It’s the elephant in the room, so lets discuss it…" Keith continued. "You’ve dyed your hair! What did Olly say, has he dyed his hair as well?"

A relieved Caroline answered: "No, I think he’s still got the same hair!"

"Has Dermot dyed his hair?" asked Keith.

"I don’t know, I don’t think he can… he’s got quite short hair hasn’t he?" mused Caroline. "I don’t think he has."

"Alright, well I’m glad we discussed that," said Keith, swiftly ending the chat.

Caroline and Olly took over from Dermot on The X Factor last year - but this week in a major U-turn it was confirmed that he'll be returning for the upcoming thirteenth series.

"I'm very flattered to be asked back to The X Factor, and am currently dusting off my dancing shoes," said Dermot, whose original X Factor stint lasted eight years. "There is nothing more exciting than hosting live TV on a Saturday night."

It's not all bad news for Caroline however, as it was recently announced that she'll be back on ITV2 with a new series of Love Island this summer.

The latest episode of Celebrity Juice - which also features Charlotte Crosby, Shayne Ward and Paddy McGuinness - airs tonight at 10.00pm on ITV2.
