Olly Murs is "too scared" to ask Simon Cowell if he can perform on 'The X Factor' this year.
The 'Please Don't Let Me Go' singer - who came second in last year's competition - admitted he would love to return to perform on the hit ITV1 show, he doesn't think he will be given the opportunity.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I really hope I can go back on the show but I'm too scared to ask Simon Cowell. I keep speaking to him on the phone but I'm too scared to mention it. I think even JLS and Alexandra Burke would agree it's a great honour to go back and perform. I don't expect to be given the opportunity, but fingers crossed I get it.
"I was a big character on the show last year and people did like me. I absolutely love 'The X Factor' and would love to go back because obviously the last time I performed on the show was when I lost to Joe McElderry. It would be great to go back as a success story and say, 'You know what? I've had a great year'."
The Essex-born hunk - who is to release his debut single next week (29.08.10) - is also set to star in a one-off documentary about his rise to fame so fans can get to know him better.
He explained: "It's just literally about what I've done since 'The X Factor' so people can get to know me a little more. People see the show and the build-up and although people get to know me to a certain extent, this will just tell them a little bit more about the real Olly Murs."
