Very sad news regarding the coming series: Konnie Huq is relinquishing her role as host of Xtra Factor.

By very sad you mean very good right? She was brilliant at creating truly awkward moments that I am sure I will watch over and over again online when I'm in the mood of finding something utterly cringeworthy and dreadful to watch but as a presenter of a programme like this she was appalling.

IMO, she wasn't right for the show and I didn't watch any Xtra Factor last year. Holly was much better, much more energetic.


Well that's hypocritical. You didn't watch any Xtra factor last year yet you have the audacity to criticise Konnie. How can you claim Holly was better if you didn't even watch Konnie?

She was fantastic and IMO she should present the main show or even move across the atlantic and do X Factor in America.

I saw some of the first show but turned off. Saw some more of her live/pre-recorded at a friends house. So didn't watch a full episode. But she came across as very dull, not right for The X Factor, in comparison to Ben/Fearne/Holly.

VirginMediaPhil - you are back peddling somewhat, you said first you didn't watch any Xtra factor when konnie was host, now you say you watched a small amount in a friends house. Its unfair to comment on how good she was considering you didn't get an overall view of her superb presenting skills. I'd like to see her on the US version if they have an xtra factor.

Obviously my "I didn't watch any" has been taken too seriously. My friend was watching it, so I had to watch it too. I didn't watch it out of choice.

So you obviously had low expectations to start with by not watching it out of choice and you did not get to view many og konnies qualities by not watching the programme which leaves you ill informed to comment on her performance and departure is xtra factor host.
