Harry Styles' old flame leaves spin-off show as Sarah-Jane Crawford climbs aboard...
Caroline Flack is leaving The Xtra Factor, it has been confirmed.
The 34-year-old former GF of One Direction's Harry Styles has presented the X Factor spin-off show since 2011 - but is now being replaced by Radio 1 DJ Sarah-Jane Crawford.
The Flackster said in a statement on Twitter: "After three brilliant years it's time to pass the baton. It's been incredible and I'll never forget it."
And she then quipped: "How can I when I am married to Louis Walsh? It's all he ever talks about at home. I wish the new team all the best and look forward to watching the new series."
And Simon Cowell insisted that they were still on good terms, saying: "We'll definitely be working together on other projects."
