She told ITV's This Morning: "I'm even more excited now because I didn't know who the judges were going to be! I found out this morning with everyone else."

Caroline will host the show with Olly Murs, making them the first ever duo to take the reigns. They replace departing presenter Dermot O'Leary.

Caroline said the new lineup is "absolutely brilliant", adding: "I think it's young, fresh, relevant… and I think [this] one big change will make it really interesting again.

"Nick knows what's going on in music at the minute more than anyone else. He knows what sells, he knows what gets radio play and I think he's also go a great sense of humour. I think he's going to be brilliant.

"Rita is one of the biggest selling artists, she's lovely, she's been on the show before, she knows it and she loves it which is great."
