Former X Factor contestant Olly Murs has such great on-screen chemistry with his Xtra Factor co host Caroline Flack that there have always been rumours about them dating. Olly has now opened up about his relationship with Caroline and insists that the two of them are just good friends and always have been.
Talking to The Sun, Murs said, “We’ve never had any connection like that — we’re just really good mates. She’s a lovely girl to be around and she’s just brilliant. The only thing I worried about was that it was going to affect our relationship on camera.” He also went on to talk about the abuse that Caroline received for her relationship with Harry Styles.
Olly added, “I felt sorry for her, going through that. It was really tough on her and Harry. Even now they’re really good mates and get on really well. People just assume she’s something that she’s not. All she did was fancy someone who was younger than her. For someone close to both of them, it wasn’t nice to watch.”
The season of The X Factor could be the last that we see of the Olly Murs and Caroline Flack hosting team on The Xtra Factor, as Olly has admitted that he may well have to quit the show while he heads to the US in an attempt to crack the American music market.
