Olly Murs: ‘Mollie from The Saturdays is gorgeous!’
He’s talented, tasty and a purveyor of tight trews, what’s NOT to like about Xtra Factor host Olly Murs?
Here, the sexy singer lifts the lid on celeb crushes, touring with One Direction and his friendship with The Flackster.
‘Fess up! What was it like touring with One Direction?
It was amazing hanging out with the lads. We got up to all sorts but as the saying goes, ‘what goes on tour, stays on tour!’ The tour was the ONLY thing that would’ve stopped me from attending Auditions. It was too good an opportunity to miss.
Have you met any of the Contestants yet?
Since returning from the States, I’ve been visiting Contestants’ houses non-stop. It’s been lovely to touch base with all the guys; they’re a lovely bunch. I’ll be featuring lots in all the Auditions episodes. Xtra Factor is going to be fab this year. Cazza and I have a year’s experience behind us and our chemistry is tight.
We must ask, will the #OllyBulge be making reappearance?
Yup! I will be rocking my trademark tight trews throughout the Live Shows. I’m a sucker for skinny jeans.
What’s this about you going on Take Me Out?
Ha… I’m not struggling too much where girls are concerned. I’m actually dying to get a guy in my band a date. I want him to sign up for Take Me Out.
Cazza wants to set you up with Mollie from The Saturdays…
She is VERY attractive. I’m not sure she fancies me though. Let’s see what happens…
Nicole’s hot too, isn’t she?
I think most of the men in the UK have a crush on Nicole, who wouldn’t? She has boyfriend though and I’m respectful of that. Let’s just say I’m window shopping – I can look but not touch.
You met her last year, didn’t you?
I’m hoping she’s forgotten our encounter. When she appeared on The Xtra Factor, I gave her the most awkward ‘huggle’ ever. She must’ve thought I was a complete weirdo. I’m just hoping she doesn’t call security when she sees me.
What do you think of Little Mix’s new single Wings?
I really like Little Mix. That song totally wasn’t what I was expecting in terms of genre. It’s a great single, a very cool tune. I’d love to have recorded it myself.
When’s your next album out?
I’m currently writing my third album – it’s due for release in November. Fingers crossed I get to perform some music from it on the Live Shows. I’d also like to thank my wonderful fans for their continued support; they’re the BEST.
Spill the beans, do you fancy Cazza?
Caroline is gorgeous - anyone can see that! However, we’re just mates and have great chemistry on camera. That's all there is to it!
