Former X Factor hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack are reportedly no longer talking after both leaving the programme.

It's been claimed that there's some bad blood between the pair after they 'quit' the show following just the one series as presenters.

According to The Sun, it all stems from Olly not telling Caroline they were going to be dropped from the this year's run.

“Caroline felt really disappointed that Olly knew they wouldn’t be returning before she did," a source told the newspaper. “She thought he’d at least have had the courtesy to tell her.

“In her eyes, the reason he got the gig in the first place was because she’d basically carried him during their stint on spin-off show The Xtra Factor."

The insider went on to claim that Caroline was "seething" after losing the job in the circumstances and that was feeling "very bitter about the whole thing."

However Caroline has since responded to the reports, writing on her Twitter account: "I'm not bitter about X factor ...I have not fallen out with Olly , I wanted to leave , I had the best time...

"...I'm happy. Rested. Feel blessed and am looking forward to the rest of the year .... "

She concluded: "Everything evolves and changes . Time to move on xx"

Caroline will be back on our tellys soon, returning for ITV2's Love Island in the summer.

As for The X Factor, show bosses have brought back Dermot O'Leary as host for this year's thirteenth series.

He said last week: "I'm very flattered to be asked back to The X Factor, and am currently dusting off my dancing shoes. There is nothing more exciting than hosting live TV on a Saturday night.

"The show is naturally very close to my heart, after having hosted it for 8 years. I'm really looking forward to it, and excited to be back."

The X Factor 2016 will air on ITV later this year.
