Xtra Factor to be shown in the US

The 'Xtra Factor' will be shown for the first time in the United States.

The 'X Factor' spin-off show - fronted by Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom - is to be aired on US television straight after the singing competition on AXS TV.

The news will no doubt please the 26-year-old singer and television presenter after the US reality TV show she had with her The Saturdays bandmates, 'Chasing The Saturdays', was cancelled after just one series on E!.

Meanwhile, Rochelle previously revealed she was ready to tame the "unruly" judges on the talent competition.

She explained: "I think when it comes to interviewing the judges on live TV, they can be a bit unruly so I'll just have to treat them the way I treat my husband and tell them, 'Listen, we've got a job to do here.' Being a mum will help. If I can deal with a two year old, I'm sure I can deal with the judges.

"I already know Cheryl [Fernandez-Versini] and Grimmy [Nick Grimshaw] and I'm getting to know Rita [Ora] and the big guy [Simon Cowell]."

And Rochelle has admitted she is trying not to think about the amount of viewers who will be tuning in.

She said: "I'm so chuffed to be doing it but I'm trying not to think about how big the show is and how many people are watching it."
