He loved working on last year’s series alongside Rita, Cheryl and Simon but it was very much a once in a lifetime experience. He remains a massive fan of the show and is looking forward to watching it this year.’

X Factor also released a statement, saying: ‘Nick was a great mentor on last year’s series. He did a fantastic job with the boys’ category and we’d like to thank him for all his hard work. We are sad to see him go but wish him all the best.’

And as for Caroline? Well, the blonde beauty is also reported to be leaving after facing criticism about her presenting style alongside Olly Murs.


‘Caroline’s a really experienced broadcaster but the combination of two presenters just didn’t work out this year,’ an ITV source told The Sun.

There’s been no official word from Caroline or her rep so far, but it’s rumoured that the Love Island host is in talks to star in the West End version of Chicago. 

Well, that’s a pretty exciting swap in our eyes. Because girl can MOVE!
