Caroline Flack will host new ITV2 panel show 'Viral Tap', with Matt Richardson and Carly Smallman serving as panellists
Caroline Flack will host new ITV2 panel show 'Viral Tap'.
'The Xtra Factor' presenter will front the new series, which will take a humorous look at the week's events through online clips and viral trends.
Caroline will be joined on the show by her 'Xtra Factor' co-host Matt Richardson and Carly Smallman, who, along with a celebrity guest, will trawl through the week's viral sensations and pick their favourite clips to play on the show.
The panellists will be looking for "the funniest, the most outrageous and the most awe-inspiring" videos submitted by the public, with viewers receiving £1,000 per clip if it is shown on air.
Caroline said: "We're looking forward to sharing some mind boggling clips with you all and pretty much spending the whole show laughing.
"I'm very excited and proud to be presenting Viral Tap. It's going to fun working with my panel; my old pal Matt and the lovely Carly who is equally hilarious."
In addition to viewers' clips, each week a celebrity guest will be tasked with creating their own video and trying to make it go viral.
Matt, 22, recently addressed speculation he has been axed as co-host of 'The X Factor' due to a lack of chemistry with Caroline, 34, and insisted they work well together.
He told BANG Showbiz: "We're doing a new show on ITV2 together so if it didn't work they wouldn't have given us our own show together. People going we didn't get on, it's not true because we're doing something new together."
