Olly Murs Speaks Out About THAT X Factor Job

This year's X Factor just won't be the same without Dermot O'Leary and rumours are rife about who will front the show in his place.

The celebrity rumour mill is in overdrive and two names that been coming up in conversation are Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.


According to Olly, the rumours are just "speculation" and he hears talk about him taking this role all of the time.

The 30-year-old said: “It’s rumours. Everyone is speculating about it. I have presented The Xtra Factor before with Caroline and I loved it.

“Caroline is great. We worked together years ago and we loved it.

“Every year there is speculation that I am going to do The X Factor, as a judge or a presenter, and I just ignore it.”


Olly was a contestant on the show in 2009 and he and Caroline co-presented the show's spin-off, The Xtra Factor from 2011 to 2012.
