Olly Murs Has Still Got The Xtra Factor

Xtra helpings for Mr Murs

Ollie Murs has signed on the dotted line for another series of The Xtra Factor – but will only appear in half the shows.

Murs fans have been afraid that the singer-cum-presenter-cum-cheekychappy would quit the show altogether over his plans to support One Direction on their US tour.

But with the gigs kicking off at the end of May, it has now been confirmed that Olly will only have to miss half of the series and will join co-host Caroline Flack for the live shows. A show source said: “X Factor bosses loved Olly on last year’s show and really wanted him to do it.

“Once the One Direction tour was confirmed we decided to offer him just the live shows instead.”

Good news all round but phewf, our heart almost skipped a beat there Olly….*gets coat and leaves*
