Sarah-Jane Crawford will join Simon Cowell on holiday

The X-Factor crew go on holiday.

The 29-year-old star - who presents 'The X Factor's spin-off show, 'The Xtra Factor' - will fly out to Barbados on St. Stephen’s Day, to join the 55-year-old media mogul, his partner Lauren Silverman and their baby son, Eric.

"Sarah-Jane was really excited and honoured to be invited to spend the holidays with Simon and his family,” a source revealed.

"While the entire 'X Factor' gang get on well, she received an invite ahead of Dermot O'Leary and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini so she has to be in his good books."

Simon's invitation to Sarah and her boyfriend Ross Harland is making her chance of returning to her role on the ITV2 show incredibly likely, providing there's no trouble in paradise.

"She'll certainly be expecting to keep her 'Xtra Factor' role for next year's series - if the holiday goes smoothly that is," the source continued to The Sun newspaper.

However, Sarah-Jane will be expected to help Simon host a charity auction whilst she's there, which helps find homes for the island's stray dogs.

The group - which also includes some of Simon's ex-girlfriends, Sinitta and Mezhgan Hussainy - won't be enjoying the comforts of his luxury yacht this year because Lauren, 37, suffers from seasickness.
