Konnie Huq doesn't know if she will return to present 'The Xtra Factor' this year, as show producers never make a decision until the last minute
Konnie Huq doesn't know if she will return to present 'The Xtra Factor'.
The 35-year-old host isn't worried about negative criticism she received for her fronting of 'The X Factor' spin-off show last year, but admits she is unsure whether show chief Simon Cowell will renew her contract and admits she is unlikely to find out until the audition process for contestants is due to begin.
She told the new issue of Star magazine: "Hopefully, I will be back, but I can't say 100 per cent, you just don't know what will happen.
"They always make decisions at the last minute so you can never say, 'Yeah, definitely!' because they could change their mind the night before.
"Any show that starts is always going to get bad press and people don't like change. With all the other previous 'Xtra Factor' presenters, they've had slack online - it's just part of the job really."
Konnie also said she likes hanging around with the show's judges - Simon, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue - after recording has finished, and particularly enjoys spending time with the male panellists.
She added: "Louis always had a party in his dressing room. I probably saw more of Louis and Simon out of work I went round with Louis one day to watch the show back with him and a load of other people and it's just really easy. He's really witty and funny, he's good company.
"Simon really is so normal. He's a really genuine, normal guy. You can just chat to him, pop into his dressing room - he's got no airs or graces. And he never gets angry or yells at anyone."
