Vick said today: “I absolutely can’t wait to get stuck in to all the backstage action at The X Factor this year!

“I love the show for its spectacle and extravagance, it really is a Saturday night TV institution that I can’t believe I get to be a part of, and with the old team back together I know it’ll be gold.

“With Dermot appearing through flames, Nicole’s Shamazing catchphrases, Louis giving us vintage Louis and of course Simon Cowell doing what he does best.

“Even better that it’s the all new celebrity version, which looks set to be more exciting and entertaining than ever, I’m hyped for the big personalities (and honestly, serious talent) both on and off the stage.

“I’m looking forward to running around behind the scenes to get the gossip, getting to know the contestants and judges and bringing you all those juicy Xtra Bites throughout the series. This should be a lot of fun!”

Vick can currently be heard on radios across the country, presenting the breakfast show on Capital FM with Roman Kemp and Sonny Jay every morning.
