Xtra Factor host Olly tries his luck with Chezza

Olly Murs risked asking Cheryl Cole for her phone number after he had a brief chat with the Geordie star online.

The brave singer, who was judged by Cheryl on 2009’s X Factor, Tweeted her as part of a conversation with fans this week – and was lucky enough to get a reply.

‘@ollyofficial sod it ill tweet you back lol… Hope your good babe xx,’ wrote Cheryl, 28.

Olly took this as his chance to make a move on Cheryl, who’s struggled to find love since her divorce from love rat footballer Ashley Cole, 31, in September 2010.

‘Haha sod it @CherylCole I’ll ask for your number then #cantblameaguyfortrying #worthashot lol haha x,’ Tweeted Olly, 27.
