Saying that, although not music related, do Family Fortunes or Splash really fit the Radio X image? I agree Vernon would be a good choice. But would be better with Dermot.

He's been doing so well having nothing to do with TXF. Can't we keep it that way?

Splash is long gone and I think FF is still on some sort of hiatus, so I don't think he needs to worry about that.

All about the right format though - I suspect The X Factor is far too rigid a format to suit him.

Holly Willoughby wouldn't be a bad bet - history with the show and of hosting similar shows and suspect Cowell would quite like to sign her up before ITV are tempted to put her back on The Voice, and I think The X Factor would be a much better fit for her anyway.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Olly Murs and Caroline Flack have quit as a co-presenters of The X Factor after just one season, as the changes come thick and fast at the Simon Cowell talent show.

As per Grimshaw it's being spun as "the duo have taken the decision to leave", when I suspect in reality it was a case of 'leave with dignity or be sacked'. As many predicted last year they appear to be fiddling with the bits that didn't necessarily need changing, rather than (so far) focussing on aspects of the format which do need addressing.

Emma Willis and Dermot O'Leary are favourite to replace Olly Murs and Caroline Flack. #XFactor
