Louis Walsh has confessed he doesn't think much of Olly Murs' presenting skills and believes he should stick to singing

Louis Walsh thinks Olly Murs should stick to singing.

The former 'X Factor' judge thinks the 'Kiss Me' hitmaker - who co-hosts the show alongside Caroline Flack - should quit presenting and get back into the recording studio following a number of awkward gaffes during the live shows.

Louis exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I loved Olly's mess up. But he made a mistake. He's a singer, he's not a TV presenter. He can just make records, he's a great artist. He works really hard."

Louis, 63 - who was axed from the singing competition and replaced by BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw earlier this year - is adamant no one will ever compare to former host Dermot O'Leary because he was so loved by viewers.

He explained: "Dermot was so safe, he was so professional and always had a nice tight suit."

However, the music manager had nothing but kind words for Dermot's replacement and Olly's co-host Caroline, as he believes she's great at her job, looks good and has a quirky personality.

He added: "I like Caroline. She's a tomboy. That's what I love about her."
