Huq expects Xtra Factor return

Konnie Huq says she's still hoping to be hosting the Xtra Factor this year

Konnie Huq is expecting to be brought back to the Xtra Factor this year - despite rumours she would be getting the chop.

The former Blue Peter presenter replaced Holly Willoughby as host of the ITV2 show last year, but was criticised by some viewers over a number of embarrassing gaffes.

On the red carpet at the National Television Awards, Konnie said she believes that she is due to take the gig again - although she admitted everything could change.

Asked if she will return, she said: "They're chopping everything around so as far as I am concerned so far yes - but you just don't know what happens in this weird and wonderful world of TV."

Konnie, who married journalist and broadcaster Charlie Brooker last year, wore a demure two-tone outfit at the ceremony, where X Factor was named Most Popular Talent Show.
