The 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer says he can't wait to host the ITV2 show for a second year.

Olly Murs has opened up about hosting The Xtra Factor for a second year and has promised the show will be even funnier when it returns this summer.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer confirmed last week that he will be back to co-host the ITV2 show again this year, describing his decision to reunite with co-host Caroline Flack as a "no brainer", and says he expects to be more comfortable in his role as a presenter.

"I think I'll probably be a lot more relaxed and I won't be as nervous," Olly told capitalfm.com. "I mean last year was really really, I mean every week I was so nervous.

"I think as the weeks went on I got more and more comfortable and I think I grew more as a presenter," Olly explained. "So the fact that everyone was loving me last year for what I was doing, I'm hoping that this year I go out there with a bit more gags and make it funnier, and I probably won't be trying as hard as well so it'll be good."

As well as presenting The X Factor sister show this year the 'Oh My Goodness' singer has also confirmed plans to head back into the recording studio in the summer to start work on the follow-up to his 2011 sophomore album 'In Case You Didn't Know'.
