"I think it's great, I mean, obviously you can't help get nervous about it," Olly told Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon this week. "I never wanted to replace Dermot [O'Leary].

"I never wanted to present the show on my own, I think presenting the show with Caroline [Flack], I'll have a lot more fun," he explained.

Olly ALSO revealed there were early talks about whether he could become a judge panelist on the show, before they agreed he'd be much more comfortable taking on hosting duties.

"It was spoken about, but I just thought presenting the show with Caroline was something I thought was really exciting," Olly added.
