Xtra Factor host Olly Murs has said he's exited to return to the spin-off show for the live finals.

The former X Factor finalist has stood down as co-host for the audition shows, with Caroline Flack taking over permanently.

Although she's been helped out along the way, with stars including Jedward, Westlife's Kian and JLS dropping by to help fill Olly's void.

Speaking to The Sun this weekend, Olly revealed: "I’ve messaged her [Caroline] and she’s having a great time at boot camp. I don’t think she even misses me.

“She’s having a great time with Kian and all the other artists that have come down and helped her out."

He added: "I hope she has missed me a little bit. I’m looking forward to coming back.

“I’ve missed the show. I spoke to her the other night and I’ve really missed being a part of it.”

The Xtra Factor airs on ITV2 from next month.
