Olly Murs: 'I have a soft spot for Spraggan'

Olly Murs believes Lucy Spraggan will win this series of 'X Factor' because she has a tattoo of his name on her foot.
Olly Murs has backed Lucy Spraggan to win 'The X Factor'.
The 'Xtra Factor' host insists he can't have "favourites" among the finalists but confessed to a soft spot for the singer after she went through with a bet to have his name tattooed on her foot.
He said: "I can't really have favourites but I'd probably have to say Lucy [Spraggan], just because she's got a tattoo of [my name] on her foot. I went to visit her house and we did some bits and bobs with her and she said to me that if I performed with her she'd get a tattoo on her foot."
Although Olly reassured Lucy she didn't have to go through with the bet, she insisted - so he agreed to pay for the artwork.
He added to new! magazine: "It was a bit tongue-in-cheek and I told her she didn't actually have to do it, but she insisted! But being the gentleman that I am, I did pay for it. I felt bad!"
