'The X Factor' bosses are considering a total revamp of spin-off show 'The Xtra Factor' and could replace Caroline Flack with her TV presenter pal Laura Jackson
Caroline Flack could be ousted from 'The Xtra Factor'.
Producers are reportedly considering a total revamp of the 'X Factor' spin-off show and are eyeing the 34-year-old beauty's pal Laura Jackson and Radio 1 DJ Sarah-Jane Crawford as potential replacements for her.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Caroline has been a huge success but bosses may be tempted to totally revamp 'The Xtra Factor'. Everything is up in the air at the moment."
Bosses are currently deciding whether to rehire Caroline or hire Laura or Sarah-Jane, and will then determine if they want to hire a male co-presenter.
Caroline has successfully fronted 'The Xtra Factor' for three years and earned high praise for her chemistry with original co-host Olly Murs. The 'Dear Darlin' singer quit the show last year and Caroline was joined by comedian Matt Richardson.
Matt, 23, previously hit out at claims he was fired from the spin-off show due to a lack of chemistry with Caroline.
He said: "For six months we just had a real laugh and it was really good, and I was really happy with all the stuff we did on the show. It wasn't for everyone ... some people went, 'We miss Caroline and Olly flirting', but we had a whole different dynamic.
"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."
