Earlier this week, Matt Edmondson was announced as the host of The Xtra Factor 2016. But guess what? The fun doesn't end there, folks; he's gonna be joined by Rylan Clark-Neal off of The X Factor and This Morning and stuff.

Yup - Rylan's returning home (he reached the live shows back in 2012, didn't he?) to present the spin-off of everyone's fave telly talent show later this year *and* it's gonna be live from the first episode this time round. Hoorah.

Chatting about his new role, Rylan said: "I can't wait to get working with Matt and finally find our niche as the odd looking Ant and Dec.  I'm so excited to work alongside the judges and Dermot and over the moon to be sharing the coming months with my Nicole as a fully-fledged Scherzy boy once more. Watch out Simon...I'm back."

Meanwhile some bigwig-type over at ITV (aka Head of Entertainment Siobhan Greene) said: " Rylan was one of the biggest personalities we have ever had on The X Factor, and made a huge impression with his infectious personality and showmanship.

"It was surely only a matter of time before he took the helm of a show that he was born to present. We're chuffed to bits and can't wait to watch the all new live The Xtra Factor presented by Rylan and Matt."
