The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer has wished luck to whoever presents alongside Caroline Flack.

Olly Murs says he is "gutted" not to be doing The Xtra Factor this year, but says you "never know" what may happen in the future.

The 'Troublemaker' has confirmed he won't be returning to present The X Factor UK's sister show this year, after doing so for the past two years, but has wished luck to whoever replaces him to present the ITV2 with Caroline Flack.

"It's going to be a shame not to do The Xtra Factor again," Olly revealed to The Sun this week. "I'm gutted because it's been a huge part of my life for the last two years.

"But I think whoever Caroline decides to pick, whoever the bosses decide to pick to replace me is going to be great," the UK singer explained. "I don't know if she would do it on her own.

"And we'll see what happens in the future. I mean, you never know," Olly continued. 'Everything that I'm doing now is for my future and for my family for the rest of my life, so I'm trying to build something for everyone."

Olly has been touring up and down the UK on his latest jaunt for the past few weeks, and says the reception from fans has been amazing.

"The reviews of the tour have been incredible. People who haven't necessarily been fans of me before have come along and loved it, which is always what you want," he added. "It's been great to show different sides to my personality as an artist and as a musician.

Olly Murs is set to join Robbie Williams' 'Take The Crown' tour as a support act from June.
