The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer reveals Simon Cowell wants him to dedicate all his time to his presenting role.

Olly Murs has confessed that Simon Cowell has told him he wants him to work on the ITV2 show Xtra Factor full time.

The 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer told the Daily Mirror that he has been given an ultimatum by the music mogul.

He revealed: "I really want to do it but when I asked Simon if I could just do the live shows, he said, 'No, it wouldn't be possible'."

The Essex star made his debut in a presenting role on the last series of the spin off show alongside Caroline Flack who said she doesn't want anyone but Olly beside her on the show.

She admitted: "They asked me if I'd consider presenting with someone else. But... that'd feel just weird – I love Olly!"

Meanwhile, the star unveiled his brand new music video yesterday (24th February) for his latest single 'Oh My Goodness' - which is released on 1st April.
