Olly Murs would only think about becoming X Factor host alongside Caroline Flack

Olly Murs says he would only consider becoming the new X Factor host if he worked alongside Caroline Flack.

The singer and the TV presenter previously enjoyed a successful stint hosting the ITV2 spin-off show The Xtra Factor together.

Main host Dermot O'Leary left the X Factor recently and Murs is rumoured to replace him.

Speaking to The Sun, the 'Never Been Better' star stated that he would only think about joining the show if Flack was in tow.

Murs said: "There's no way I would even discuss doing the job on my own to replace Dermot. Dermot is one of my best mates in the industry.

"He's my showbiz brother. I would never do the job on my own and never try to be Dermot O'Leary.

"The only way I would even think or talk about it would be if Caroline was doing it with me because me and Caroline were great together.

"I wouldn't want us to be compared to Dermot, because Dermot is brilliant at what he is. It would be completely different to what Dermot did."
