Simon Cowell has revealed the main reason he hired Caroline Flack and Olly Murs as new presenters of The X Factor. He loves their sexual chemistry! The music mogul fired Dermot O’Leary from the role earlier this year and replaced him with a duo for the first time. The pair first worked together on ITV2 companion show The Xtra Factor for two years and were widely regarded as the most popular hosts the show ever enjoyed. Simon seems sure there is more than friendship between the pair, though
Earlier this year, after it was first rumoured that Louis Walsh had been axed from The X Factor judging panel, among the names being bandied about as his likely replacement was Olly Murs… And of course, given that singer Olly first shot to fame on the show, and as he later co-presented The Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack, he seemed to be the obvious choice for the job. However, he reportedly turned down Simon Cowell’s offer, and this week, he’s revealed why, telling This Morning viewer
Unless you’re headless, you’ll know that for weeks now, Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw has been hotly tipped to be in-line for the seat on The X Factor judging panel that Irish music mogul Louis Walsh has recently – though it’s still to be officially announced – made vacant. However, there’s been the issue of Nick’s job on Radio 1 to get around, given that he has reportedly stated flat-out that he doesn’t want to give it up – and rather, wants to do that and work on X Factor at the s
One Direction fans call demon in #charliecharliechallenge as Olly Murs praises new Niall Horan tunes!
One Direction fans have gotten themselves involved in something very weird this week, as thousands around the world attempt the #charliecharliechallenge. The latest craze to strike social media has been a Ouija-board-style ritual, where young participants call upon a Mexican demon to answer questions about their future, they then post videos of their experience online. Thousands of clips have appeared featuring people asking “Charlie are you there?”. If Charlie is present a pencil wi
Olly Murs wants different X Factor role? Boy George to be judge on Simon Cowell’s new show, Ultimate DJ?
Gorgeous singer Olly Murs has freely admitted that he would never have contemplated taking over Dermot O’Leary’s job as host of The X Factor if he’d been asked to do so alone, and his return to the show hinged on whether Caroline Flack would be co-presenting… And of course, it transpired that she is going to be doing exactly that, which is great news for fans of the pair, whose onscreen partnership has been well tried and tested, given they both formerly hosted spin-off show The Xtra
Caroline Flack has opened up on her romance with One Direction star Harry Styles and insisted that she will never apologise for the relationship. The former Xtra Factor host hooked up with the young singer back in 2011, just a year after he finished on the ITV show. The pair dated for just over three months and much was made, at the time, of the 14 year age gap between them. It was in this period that Harry developed a reputation for being attracted to cougars. Caz has insisted that too much was
A number of weeks back it was confirmed that Olly Murs and Caroline Flack will be co-hosting this year’s series of The X Factor, but it seems Simon Cowell may have taken a bit of a gamble on having the pair host the main show. There are a few reasons why, including the fact that The X Factor has never had a duo presenting it before, and it has left some fans worried that on half of the duo will be left a little redundant. Not only that, Olly Murs had divulged that he isn’t naturally a presen
Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2015: Olly Murs sets the stage on FIRE with Ella Eyre & Nick Grimshaw! SETLIST!
The second and final day of Radio 1’s Big Weekend is well underway now down in Norwich, and what a day it is going to be. There are some world class acts set to take to the main stage throughout the day at the Big Weekend festival, but Olly Murs just opened the main stage and what a fantastic job he did. We’ve had the absolute pleasure of seeing Olly Murs live on tour, and he just brought some of that magic and sparkle to the Big Weekend festival. Although we reckon he should have been a lit

The line-up across the whole weekend has been stellar this year, but seriously, those of you with Sunday tickets, you have the likes of Rita Ora, Olly Murs, James Bay, and the mighty Taylor Swift to look forward to.

It turns out that if you’re ever in a position where you need to be wooed by Simon Cowell, then he is going to pull out all the stops, you needn’t worry about that. But then again, we’ll probably never be in a position where Simon Cowell will need to cook us every curry under the sun to get us to agree to do something. As it has been previously announced, Caroline Flack and Olly Murs will be returning to The X Factor this year, in which they will present the main show together following th
