When Olly Murs isn’t fluffing his lines on The X Factor he’s busy flirting with Caroline Flack.

The pair’s cheeky on-screen behaviour has left viewers wondering if there’s something more going on between the co-hosts.

And while Olly insists there is absolutely no romance between him and Caroline, he admits he does love a bit of a flirt with the television presenter.

Speaking on Alan Carr: Chatty Man, Olly said: “Listen, we are great mates and we have a laugh. We play up to it.”

He added: “We are great mates. That is all we have ever been. We just like having a laugh and a flirt. We are flirtatious.”

So, the singer REALLY wants us to know him and Caroline are just friends, and just to make sure we know for sure he’s single, he opened up about the time he once turned down Jennifer Lawrence.

Olly missed out on the chance of a date with the actress after The X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw introduced them.


The warbler said: “Oh, I had a terrible time. I was awful. It was so bad. I have been waiting to meet this woman for, like, ever. I love her to bits and I just had nothing to say.

“She walked in and it felt like love. I am being deadly serious. She walked in and I was just like, ‘Oh my God, she is fit.’ I was like, ‘What do I do here?’”

The musician should have been prepared as he and BBC Radio One DJ Grimmy had prepared some chat-up lines but Olly decided they were too “creepy”.

He said: “I completely bottled it and got really shy and she was so lovely. Blew my chances mum, sorry. You are not going to Hollywood, staying in Essex.”

Better luck next time, hey, Olly?

Alan Carr: Chatty Man airs tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.
