The 30-year-old also said that he thinks he and Caroline can bring something different to the show.

"When we did the Xtra Factor, the show had never had a twosome do it before.


"It’s the first time the X Factor the main show’s had that. So we’re looking to bring something fresh, something different. Of course Ant & Dec are the pinnacles of that, and do it so well.

"So we just wanna be ourselves and have a lot of fun, and I think it’s gonna be really great.

"I think X Factor and Simon wanted to revamp the show, and do some new changes, and obviously we’re delighted to be a part of it. I’m excited! I love TV and I love The X Factor".
