'X Factor' 2015: Caroline Flack Admits Fears She'd Be Sacked By Simon Cowell, Following First Day Blunder

Caroline Flack has admitted she feared she’d be sacked from her new job on ‘The X Factor’, after putting her foot in her mouth on the first day of shooting.


She and Olly Murs were announced as the new hosts of the ITV singing competition earlier this year, having previously hosted two series of spin-off series ‘The Xtra Factor’, although Caroline admitted she was scared she’d be sacked over a comment she made on her first day.

Speaking to The Mirror, she claims she asked new boss Simon Cowell a “ridiculous” question on the first day of shooting, which unsurprisingly didn’t make it onto the air.

“His face went like, ‘What kind of a question is that?’. I thought, ‘I’m sacked’.”

Meanwhile, several other contestants from this year’s show have a history of cropping up in reality TV, with Alex Boyle appearing on ‘America’s Got Talent’, and Hannah Kilmister starring in the UK equivalent.

Viewers’ favourites 4th Power also courted controversy when it emerged that they had made a splash when they appeared on a TV talent show in South Korea.
