Caroline Flack was at the centre of constant speculation about her relationship with with former 'Xtra Factor' co-host Olly Murs, but his replacement Matt Richardson doesn't believe the same fate awaits him.

Talking to HuffPost UK about the potential tabloid whispers, he said: "I don't (want it to happen). I think as soon as people see the first ten seconds of the first episode they'll think he's too much of a goon. No one will ever go out with him."
While there may be no romantic spark, the pair have already developed a close bond, with Caroline describing Matt as being like her "naughty little brother".
Talking about the process of finding Matt for the role, she said: "The people that came in weren't quite right and too much like Olly. We said if we didn't find anyone, that was fine and then this guy walked in with a backpack.
"He was so funny and made us laugh and was completely different from Olly, that we knew straight away."

Matt added that he had been experiencing sleepless nights about replacing the Essex singer on the show, fearing a backlash from his army of loyal fans.
"I lost sleep over it, it was horrific," he told us.
"For about three weeks between being offered the job and starting it, I didn't sleep much because I was going, 'people really like Olly Murs, I hope they don't hate me'."
Don't worry Matt, we have a feeling everyone is going to LOVE you.
