There’s a first peek of Olly Murs in his new role as X Factor presenter. Well, sort of. There’s no judges, there’s no one singing, co-host Caroline Flack isn’t there. But he is talking about The X Factor. So it’s as close as we’ll get for now.
Olly’s calling on budding singers to audition. Otherwise he won’t have anything to present will he? You can’t just stand around with your arms in an ‘X’ shape if there’s no one there. You can’t banter with Simon Cowell for being nasty to an empty room. And Louis Walsh can’t tell no one they’re a young version of no one can he?
Anyway… the former contestant, turned Xtra Factor host, turned guest judge, turned full-time host (maybe Cowell should be watching his back) will be guiding us through this year’s revamped show later this year, and so here’s a little taste of what it will be like with Olly in Dermot’s former spot:
Emma is RadioTimes.com’s resident reality TV expert and is most likely to be found chasing Simon Cowell down the street, cancelling her social life to keep up with the latest batch of sob stories and trying to get selfies with celebrities. Emma is a chat show addict and quotes Friends more than is probably healthy.
