Caroline Flack hasn't spoken to Simon Cowell since leaving the 'Xtra Factor'.
The television presenter has admitted that her former boss hasn't been in contact since she left the ITV show and signed up for its ratings rival, 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
However, while talking to BANG Showbiz at the 'Strictly Come Dancing' press launch on Tuesday (02.09.14), Caroline insisted that the pair were still friendly.
She shared: "I haven't spoken to Simon since 'Xtra' but we're really good friends, yeah we're on good terms.
"It doesn't feel weird because I've had three really amazing years at 'The X Factor' it was the most fun job and I loved it so much. It's something new and it's good to keep changing things. It's good for them as well at 'Xtra Factor' because that's how 'The X Factor' works, you have to keep updating and it was time for them to get someone in, definitely."
The beautiful blonde also emphasised that the BBC dancing competition "couldn't be more different" from her former job as presenter on 'The X Factor' spin-off show on ITV2.
Caroline explained: "'The X Factor' job is generally talking about other people, you bring out the best in them but suddenly you're learning a whole new skill and in front of millions of people. It couldn't be more different. I think change is always good, even if I'm more nervous."
She even added that her former 'Xtra Factor' co-host Olly Murs would be "amazing" on the dancing show.
She gushed: "He's just got that confidence. He's one of the most confident people I know in all areas in life. In a lovely way, yeah he's just very confident."
