Rylan Clark-Neal is announced as The Xtra Factor co-host
Following the news that Matt Edmondson will take over from Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom, Rylan Clark-Neal has been announced as co-host.
For months there have been rumours that Rylan would have some part in the new show with his colleagues, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, teasing him relentlessly on This Morning.
Rylan broke the news himself on the talk show saying:
I’m very honoured and over the moon to say that after four years of being away, I’m back. I’m going back to host The Xtra Factor alongside the lovely Matt Edmondson, who’s great – we just get on so well. We are literally over the moon.
Although he left the competition unsuccessful, since then Rylan has appeared on and won Celebrity Big Brother, he is the host of Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, and appears as a regular correspondent on This Morning. He will continue in these roles whilst working at The Xtra Factor.
