British TV presenter Caroline Flack — who famously dated One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles — is reportedly swamped with American job offers following her stint covering the BAFTA Awards for E!, but X Factor patriarch Simon Cowell is particularly keen to have her involved with his show.

The move would make sense, since the word on the street is that he fired Season 2 host Khloe Kardashian.

Currently Caroline hosts The Xtra Factor, a companion show to the British X Factor, alongside rising pop star Olly Murs.

If she doesn't land that plush hosting role, the 33-year-old could be asked to host a spin-off similar to Xtra.

"It's early days, but Simon has chatted with Caroline about working on The X Factor," a source tells Heat. "He thinks she's absolutely brilliant on Xtra Factor.

"At the Sony BRITs party, he and Caroline sat in the corner all night together, having a long, animated talk. He really likes her cheeky, down-to-earth TV persona and how nothing fazes her."

A friend reveals, however, that Caroline is unsure whether she wants to make a move across the pond, saying, "She wants to take her time. She loves working on The Xtra Factor, and she would never leave the UK permanently."

We’re excited by this prospect, X-fans, but how do you feel about the change? Sound off in the comments below!
