Olly Murs Admits To Nicole Scherzinger Crush: "I Can Look But Not Touch!"

The Xtra Factor host says he thinks most men in the country have a crush on the show's newest judge.

Olly Murs has revealed he has a crush on new The X Factor UK panelist Nicole Scherzinger, but is happy to "look but not touch" because of her relationship with Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer serves as a co-host on ITV2 sister series The Xtra Factor, and admitted he fancies the former Pussycat Doll star earlier this week.

"I think most of the men in Britain have a crush on her, who wouldn't?" Olly told The Metro. "She has a boyfriend though, and I'm respectful of that.

"Let's just say I'm window shopping - I can look but not touch!"

The 'Dance With Me Tonight' star went on to say his first encounter with the 'Try With Me' singer, during her appearance on The X Factor last year, didn't go exactly as he had planned.

"I'm hoping she's forgotten our encounter," Olly admitted. "When she appeared on The Xtra Factor I gave her the most awkward huggle ever. She must have thought I was a complete weirdo."

Last year Olly and The Xtra Factor co-host Caroline Flack were long rumoured to be dating due to their flirtatious on-screen chemistry, however the two have always insisted they are just good friends.

The X Factor UK 2012 launches this Saturday 18th August from 8pm on ITV1.
