I know everyone is saying Rylan but please god surely the Producers have more sense? It needs a proper presenter!
Some good suggestions here.

Caroline and Olly were the best duo on tv. Can't think of anyone who could replace Olly

Rylan hopefully.

Hopefully not one of the Radio 1/T4 type presenters that speak sarcastically about EVERYTHING and it's evident they don't like pop music anyway.

i think Caroline should just carry on alone, although i did love her & Olly together i still enjoyed her on her own last year until Olly came back for live shows

Rylan or Mark Wright will probably get it.

I hope Caroline does it alone, I definitely don't want Rylan.

Preferably not a chav idol like Mark Wright or Rylan.

it needs someone vaguely witty or quick off the mark. Rylan was very divisive as a contestant and a lot of people won't enjoy being subjected to him on a weekly basis, he'd soon get boring

Equally, TOWIE doesn't have a massive pool of viewers so it'd be like appointing an unknown.

I wouldn't watch if Rylan was appointed and I don't really know Wright but he sounds awful

Matt Edmondson was very nearly going to do it last time until he was dropped at the last minute - I've always thought he'd be a good choice. Not sure how he'd work with Caroline but he's a good host, witty, bright without being pretentious and irreverent enough without being too disdainful of the show/contestants. I liked the Olly/Caroline duo but in fall fairness I do think that was more down to Caroline than Olly.

Matt Edmondson or Will Best.
Matt's done stuff with X Factor before and was set to co-host with Caroline initially before Olly.
Will's presenting Simon Cowell's You Generation and wouldn't be surprised if he did Xtra Factor too.
Both have presented T4 and I think either would be a good replacement.

Am I the only one who wouldn't mind Nick Grimshaw? I know he gets a lot of stick (undeservedly imo) but I always did like his presenting/interviewing on T4. I wouldn't mind Will Best either though

I'd love Matt Edmondson to do it on his own. Slot-wise it doesn't clash with his Radio 1 weekend show or Fake Reaction on ITV2.

Will Best is another good suggestion. But a big fat NO to Rylan or anyone from TOWIE.

I think they should get a comedian to do it. A good one at that.

I agree with those who said Will Best should do it.
