Caroline Flack has wished new Xtra Factor presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford luck on her debut this weekend.

Radio 1Xtra DJ Sarah-Jane will replace Caroline as the host of the X Factor spinoff series this year, after Caroline announced she was leaving following three years on air.

Today, Sarah-Jane tweeted: "Lovely catching up with Miss Caroline Flack this AM who wished me luck for Sat. Drinks soon please #girlpower."

Caroline replied: "Yes girl! You'll smash it! Now get on with holidays… I mean, judges' houses xx."


Sarah-Jane was announced as Caroline's replacement earlier this year and it's fair to say she's rather excited about her new job!

"It's a dream job. When I found out I was at the gym getting a protein shake and my agent called me and told me I got the job, I screamed and everyone thought I had bought a dodgy protein shake. I just keep reminding myself to enjoy it while it's happening rather than thinking ahead to the live shows."

"There are so many elements to this job that it's difficult to pin point what I'm most excited about. It's exciting to meet the auditionees because you're potentially meeting the winner or a big star," continued Sarah-Jane. "You don't know where they're going to end up.

"I'm excited about judges' houses because why wouldn't you be excited to travel to glamorous locations around the world. And ultimately I'm really excited about the live shows because I'm a massive fan of the show."

X Factor returns to our screens on Saturday, 30 August and Sunday, 31 August, with our first look at this year's hopefuls in the audition stages.

Those were filmed earlier this year and now the judges and contestants are on to judges' houses, the part of the show where the judges whisk their chosen acts off to an exotic location to whittle them down to the handful who will go to live shows.

So far, we know Louis Walsh has been filming in Bermuda, which means the whole cast and crew – including Sarah-Jane – get to fly out there. LUCKY!
