Kiss FM DJs Melvin Odoom and Rickie Haywood-Williams are the latest names linked with the Xtra Factor hosting roles.

According to The Sun, the breakfast show hosts are in the running to replace Sarah-Jane Crawford as presenters on the X Factor spinoff show on ITV2.

The newspaper claims they will co-present alongside The Saturdays' Rochelle Humes, who was linked to Xtra Factor last week.

Melvin and Rickie have worked with Rochelle before, on BBC Three's Sweat The Small Stuff, which also featured Nick Grimshaw, who is apparently in the running for a main judging role on X Factor.

What a small world!

As always, bosses at X Factor are refusing to confirm or deny judging or hosting rumours at this moment, although The Sun claims Radio 1 DJ Nick could be unveiled as a new judge as early as this week.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are returning as judges, but Louis Walsh and Mel B are widely speculated to be leaving. Nick and Rita Ora are thought to be the most likely replacements.

Over on Xtra Factor, we already know that Sarah-Jane will not be returning to host, meaning that role is wide open. Previous Xtra Factor hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack have moved on to host the main show.
