Christine Bleakley looks incredible in her tight jeans... but she hasn't got the Xtra Factor

No deal: Christine Bleakley, pictured outside the Mayfair Hotel yesterday, will not be hosting the Xtra Factor

With her dark brown hair and shapely physique, Christine Bleakley is just the kind of woman to catch the attention of Simon Cowell.

But while the One Show host, 31, was widely tipped as a possible replacement for Holly Willoughby as the host The Xtra Factor, ITV sources insists she won't be joining the show.

Frank Lampard's girlfriend, who was pictured showing off her figure in a pair of tight-fitting skinny jeans yesterday, has previously said she is 'very happy' in her current role.

It will come as welcome news to ITV pin-up Caroline Flack, who is also said to be being considered for the role.

The Whole 19 Yards co-host Flack, 29, is in the running for the £100,000-a-series job hosting the ITV2 show which it returns in September.

Friends of Flack told The Sun she had met Cowell during a recent trip to Los Angeles and he was impressed with her presenting CV.


But one person who will be disappointed is Cowell's fellow Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, who is friends with Bleakley.

She has been encouraged the Northern Irish star to leave her £100,000-a-year salary at the BBC and defect to ITV.

She said: 'She’s fantastic! I don’t blame ITV for trying to get hold of her because she’s brilliant.’

'I think the BBC should try to keep hold of her, but The Xtra Factor is an amazing gig.’

Willoughby took over from presenter pal Fearne Cotton as the host of The Xtra Factor in 2008 and has seen its ratings rise to an average of 1.04million a week.

The Daily Mail exclusively revealed in October how Willoughby planned to quit The Xtra Factor because it clashed with her new role on This Morning.

Willoughby ended up working nearly every day on both The Xtra Factor and This Morning last autumn, leaving her little time to spend with her baby son Harry, who turned one on Tuesday.
