Sarah-Jane Crawford has confirmed she won’t be back to present The Xtra Factor this year.
The presenter will follow in main show host Dermot O’Leary’s footsteps by leaving the programme after rumours that there would be a shake-up in the format for the coming series.
Xtra factor has been amazing 😁 ! However I have a new project coming up this summer & with all the changes happening I won't be back....— Sarah-Jane Crawford (@DJSarahJane) May 11, 2015
... But I'm so excited to see the new line up and wanna wish them all the luck in the world 👯... Can't wait to watch them in action!— Sarah-Jane Crawford (@DJSarahJane) May 11, 2015
Sarah-Jane hasn’t yet revealed what her new project will be.
Dermot chose to leave his role earlier his year and will be replaced by former Xtra Factor presenting duo Olly Murs, who was also a previous contestant, and Caroline Flack.
At the moment, it isn’t clear who will join Simon Cowell on the judging panel – Mel B will not return and there has been no news about Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. Simon also seemed to suggest that Louis Walsh would not return in a recent tweet.
Louis Walsh is one of the good guys. We will always be friends. The door remains open and who knows what's next.......— Simon Cowell (@SimonCowell) May 11, 2015
Meanwhile, Cheryl cryptically posted on Instagram: “#Mondaymayhem when you hear some juicy gossip that you know is true ooooh..”
