Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez confirmed as X Factor USA hosts

After months of speculation, Khloé Kardashian and Mario Lopez have been confirmed as hosts for The X Factor USA.

It was Simon Cowell who broke the news yesterday, in a statement that said: '"The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out. Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn't be happier."

"I’m thrilled, overjoyed and of course a little nervous about this new step in my career, and I can’t wait to get started!"

Mario Lopez - who previously hosted MTV's 'America's Best Dance Crew' - said pretty much the same thing, adding, "Khloé and I have been friends for years and I know we'll be a great team and have a blast."
