The Xtra Factor Highlights 2013!

Matt and Caroline did a great job on this year's The Xtra Factor!

Matt and Caroline did a great job on this year’s The Xtra Factor!

Last year as well as enjoying The X Factor I enjoyed The Xtra Factor too! And here I am going to give you my five highlights from the show in no particular order!

Highlight 1: Matt Richardson:

It was excellent to see new presenter Matt Richardson make his debut on The Xtra Factor. He is a guy who has everything. He’s a great presenter, he’s funny, he seems down-to-earth and lovely and he’s funny. Particular highlights include his fake audition for X Factor which just cracked me up, his and Caroline piece on bringing back contestants for another audition at the arena, his winkie his bath-time with Matt, all the hanging out with the contestants moments and his moments with the audience especially with his mum, dad and Johnny Robinson. Him and Caroline did a great job!

Highlight 2: Louis’s Boys:

The three of Louis’s boys Sam, Nicholas and Luke were lovely and down-to-earth this year and I loved their interviews on The Xtra Factor.

Highlight 3: Olly Murs’s and Robbie Williams’s Night Out With The Contestants:

When the remaining guys at the time had a night out with Olly and Robbie that looked fun!

Highlight 4: The Guests:

There was many great contestants including Olly Murs, Rylan Clark, Barbara Winsor, Dynamo,Union J, The Vamps, Louis and Niall from One Direction, Matt Johnson, Ashwin Abinashi, Leona Lewis and Katy B as well as all the fun contestants were back to dance to The Vamps at the end that week including Diva Fever, Johnny Robinson and Wagner.

Highlight 5: Great Auditions:

I thought Lee Lambert and Ryan Davis were brilliant.

Matt Richardson

For the next three weeks I am going to write blogs about The X Factor in the three week countdown to the first live show from The X Factor class of 2013. The X Factor is at the bootcamp stage of the competition and one man is going to be on hand to bring us all the backstage gossip. I am of course talking about Matt Richardson!


Matt Richardson is the handsome, talented, nice and witty host who has filled the very big shoes of singer Olly Murs presenting The Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack shown after The X Factor on TV3 over here in Ireland and on ITV in the UK.


He was born on the 28th of May 1991 in Didcot and was raised in Oxford. He is a stand-up comidien as well as a presenter. He started doing stand up in November 2009 at the age of 18. He was the winner last year of Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival with Head Judge Richard Erwin Jones saying of his show that it was “One of the most exciting hours of comedy I’ve seen in 15 years”. He also won the Oxfringe New Act Competition 2010 and the Newbury Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2010. He was also a Finalist in So You Think You’re Funny 2010, the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2010 and the New Act Competition Latitude 2011.


Apart from The Xtra Factor other TV credits include Big Brother’s Big On The Side, Sweat The Small Stuff, Greatest and Funniest Moments of 2012 and The Geordie Shore Awards while radio credits are Russell Kane’s Summer Seaside Tour for BBC Radio 2. His live credits are Hometown Hero, National Tour 2013.


Richardson is doing amazingly on The Xtra Factor. He has been funny in his near fake audition when he nearly sang Michael Buble’s Cry Me a River and Caroline came in to stop him and also when he takes on the varying jobs of the X Factor crew. He is so natural, down-to-earth and funny on the show and I love him on it.


He is signed to Lisa Thomas Management. Two good names, mine and my uncle’s!
