Melvin Odoom from KISS to co-host Xtra Factor

Melvin from “Rickie, Melvin & Charlie in the Morning” on KISS FM UK is to co-host The Xtra Factor on ITV2 with Rochelle Humes.

It’s been a big week for radio presenters getting television gigs, with Chris Evans joining Top Gear and Nick Grimshaw being a judge on The X Factor, and now this.

Melvin Odoom has been on KISS for eight years with his co-hosts, and will now join ITV2 this autumn for the new series. He’s no stranger to TV though, having hosted shows across 4Music, T4, Kiss TV, MTV, BBC3 and presenting at The Brit Awards for ITV2.

Speaking about his new role, Melvin says: “I’ve always been a massive fan of the show and to get to present The Xtra Factor is a dream for me. We are there to support the contestants and have fun – I’m really looking forward to it!”

ITV’s Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions Angela Jain, added “We are really excited that Rochelle and Melvin are joining the The Xtra Factor team. Their energy, humour and enthusiasm for the show will make for a fun-filled Autumn.”
