Olly Murs admitted he would be "too jealous" to watch former co-host Caroline Flack present 'Xtra Factor' with his replacement Matt Richardson this year
Olly Murs will be "too jealous" to watch 'Xtra Factor' this year.
The 'Troublemaker' singer, who ditched plans to return as a co-host on the 'X Factor' spin-off show to concentrate on his music career, admits it will be too difficult to watch his former co-presenter front the programme with his replacement Matt Richardson.
Speaking on ITV's 'Daybreak', he said: "I told Caroline I'm refusing to watch the show, I'm going to be too jealous to see a new guy stood next to her."
Olly - who previously played down speculation he and Caroline were dating following their flirty antics on-screen - admits he prefers to keep his relationships private.
He said: "I think it's important if you're going to have a relationship for it to sustain ... especially being a celebrity or a popstar. Relationship sell by dates are a year."
The 'Dear Darlin' hitmaker also joked he is jealous of socialite Lauren Silverman, who is expecting a child with 'X Factor' boss Simon Cowell.
He joked: "I'm a bit jealous now, he was mine!
"I think Olly would be a great name, Simon."
