X Factor 2011: Caroline Flack wants Kelly Rowland to be her "life mentor"!

Caroline Flack

Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack appears to have a tad of a girl crush - on new X Factor judge Kelly Rowland! Speaking to Star magazine, the ITV2 spin-off presenter said that she wanted the "stunningly beautiful" Kelly to mentor her life!

Caroline took over hosting duties on this year's series alongside former X Factor winner Olly Murs, and for us the pair have been surprisingly good - we can actually watch the show the whole way through now.

Speaking about the new look panel, Caroline gushed over Kelly: "I want her to be my life mentor! She has that American energy but isn't cheesy with it. She doesn’t change when she's off camera either; when she finished the show, she comes backstage, takes her shoes, off, lies on the sofa and has a good old natter.

"And she's so beautiful she doesn’t look real. She. Is. Stunningly. Beautiful."

On Tulisa, Caroline revealed: "She means what she says and says what she means. She is caring person and with a really big heart and is very supportive of Olly and me, I really like her."

And Louis? "I never realised he was so funny! He's very sharp and incredibly quick."

The Xtra Factor airs after the main show every weekend on ITV2.
