The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer reveals that he may not return to his presenting post for a second series for fears of being typecast.
Olly Murs has admitted that he may quit his presenting role on The Xtra Factor.
The 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer confessed that he doesn't want to feel typecast by the role and wants to concentrate on his music career.
Speaking to New magazine about returning as a presenter on the show next year, he said: "I don't know, we haven't spoken about it yet. I've told them that I'm open to speak about next year, but I'm not saying 'no' and I'm not saying 'yes'. We'll see what happens."
"Presenting is always a tricky one because the more you do it, the more you get typecast as a presenter and I'm not a TV presenter, you know? I want to continue doing my singing, but we'll see what happens next year," he added.
The 'Please Don't Let Me Go' singer also confessed that he is unsure whether any of the judges on The X Factor will return for another series of the show but wants to keep his own options open.
"I don't know their contracts, so I don't know how long they've signed up for. But I know for me it's the sort of situation where I've had a great time and would love to do it again, but I want to concentrate on my music next year," he revealed.
Meanwhile, Olly was recently named as one of the hardest working acts in music after performing an impressive amount of live shows in 2011.
