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.
