Roman Kemp is in talks to replace Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odom on 'The Xtra Factor' when the spin-off show returns to screens later this year

Martin Kemp's son is being lined up to host 'The Xtra Factor'.

Roman Kemp - the youngest child of the Spandeau Ballet singer - has been eyed up to host the spin-off programme after he left show boss Simon Cowell speechless during a recent interview.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "Obviously we have a lot of talks about it. We've had a lot of talks in the past year about 'Xtra Factor' so we'll see. For me, that's the next step."

But the radio DJ can't quite believe he's even in with a shot of hosting the show as it's something he's always dreamed of.

He explained: "It's nice to know these big shows I look up to are watching and thinking about putting me in that show.

"Having companies like ITV ask if you're interested in doing these types of shows, like 'Xtra Factor', it's nice, it's really nice."

However, Roman, 23, may miss out on the presenting gig this year as bosses are still considering keeping Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odom, who took over from Caroline Flack and Olly Murs last year, on for another series.

A show insider said: "Rochelle and Melvin did a great job last years. No decisions have been taken on what's going to happen this year."
