The faces of X Factor spin-off series the Xtra Factor have been revealed.

And it is more of the same from ITV, which keeps Caroline Flack and Olly Murs in front of the cameras.

The duo proved a successful double act in 2011.

Flack - who last year dated One Direction star Harry Styles - will cover the audition stage of the contest alone while pop star Murs tours the US.

However he will record items for the series and will be on screen for the live shows in the autumn.

Flack said: “Even though Olly and I won’t be reunited in person until the live shows we will be together all the way in spirit, he’s bound to be calling me mid-interview to check what has been happening on the judges tour to ensure he doesn’t miss out on any crucial gossip.”

Murs said: “I know it’s going to be a great year and we’ll be grilling the judges and contestants more than ever before.”
