'Xtra Factor' host Olly Murs would love to work with 'X Factor' singer James Arthur because he thinks he is the "finished product"
Olly Murs wants to duet with James Arthur.
The 'Xtra Factor' host - who shot to fame after coming second on 'The X Factor' in 2009 - believes the 23-year-old hopeful is already the "finished product" and would love to work with him in the future.
He told Metro newspaper: "James Arthur is almost the finished product really. He could come out now and release a record and I'm sure he'd do really well.
"Me and James have become really good mates as well on the show.
"He's someone that I get on really really well with so he's probably someone who I'd like to work with in the future or go on tour with."
While James is currently only third favourite to win, behind Ella Henderson and Jahmene Douglas, Olly believes his chances shouldn't be discounted.
He said: "I think he does have a shot of course.
"I mean, he's one of the favourites, as is Jahmene and Ella. They're the three everyone's talking about."
'The X Factor' - which this week has a Best of British theme - returns to ITV1 tomorrow (10.11.12).
