Joe Swash thinks Caroline Flack is the only person ''funny and cool enough'' to present ITV2 spin-off show 'The Xtra Factor'
Joe Swash thinks Caroline Flack is the only person "funny and cool enough" to present 'The Xtra Factor'.
The 29-year-old TV host - who fronted 'I'm A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here, NOW!' alongside the brunette beauty - admits while the job wasn't right for former presenter Konnie Huq, Caroline's "dirty sense of humour" is perfect for the 'X Factor' spin-off.
Joe exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Caroline's name was being banded around for 'The Xtra Factor' even when Konnie was still doing it. She's the only person who could hold it together and be funny and cool enough for that job. If I was a producer I would go hell for leather for Caroline.
"Konnie was doing it on her own, which is difficult. Some jobs just aren't suitable for you. Konnie is good at other stuff and she's an amazing presenter when she's on the right show.
"They needed someone more edgy, Caroline is perfect for that show. She's got a dirty sense of humour and I think 'The Xtra Factor' needs that."
Joe - who is now presenting new ITV2 game show 'Minute To Win It' alongside Caroline - admitted while he would loved to have bagged the 'Xtra Factor' gig, he thinks Caroline's co-host, former 'X Factor' finalist Olly Murs, is a good choice.
He added: "You know what, I would have loved to have gone on 'The Xtra Factor' with Caroline. But I suppose Olly's got the history with 'The X Factor' and a massive fan base, there are girls chasing him around everywhere.
"Caroline and Olly get along like me and her do so you can see how it would work straight away."
'Minute To Win It', presented by Cadbury Spots v Stripes, is on Tuesdays at 8pm on ITV2.
