Oh, it's all change on The X Factor this year innit? After Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbuorne were announced as 2016's judging panel the other week, The Xtra Factor's got a shiny new presenter in the form of...*drumroll*...Matt Edmondson. Hoorah.

Matt will be taking over from Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom on the spin-off and things are set to be shaken up this series. Yup, the show's gonna be live from the very first episode this year. OH WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Chatting about his fancy new role, Matt said: "I am unbelievably excited about joining The Xtra Factor this year, not least of all because on my first day Louis Walsh walked into my dressing room topless, unannounced. I regard this as the definition of 'living the dream'".

What an image. Anyway, here he is being adorable with his dog (if you don't follow him on Instagram, you MUST - said dog's amazing.)
