Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will not be flying out to the exotic Judges' Houses locations on X Factor this year, according to a new report.

It's tradition for the show's host to jet out to the likes of Los Angeles, Dubai and Mexico to chat with contestants at Judges' Houses and get reactions from those going through to the live shows and those going home.

But according to The Sun, producers are switching things up this year because the Judges' Houses portion of the show will be broadcast live for the first time.

That means Caroline and Olly need to be at the TV studio in London to anchor the episode – rather than basking in the sunshine abroad.

A source said: "Being with the judges and contestants at this crucial stage is one of the best bits of the job. And it beats being stood in a cold studio in Wembley. But they are excited about the series."

This will be c following the departure of long-time host Dermot O'Leary. It's also the first time the show has ever had a duo presenting.

Of course, both Cazza and Olly have plenty of experience having hosted Xtra Factor together in the past. This year, it will be Rochelle Humes and Kiss FM DJ Melvin Odoom hosting the spinoff show.

Filming for the auditions stage wrapped this week with judges Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Simon Cowell, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw seeing the final hopefuls.

Next up is Boot Camp where the contestants are whittled down even more before the judges find out which category they have been assigned: boys, girls, overs or groups. Then it's Judges Houses', where each judge jets off somewhere exotic with a celebrity guest judge to decide which acts to take through to live shows and which will be leaving the competition.
