Xtra Factor host Olly speaks out

Olly Murs has denied that he’s abandoning his job on The Xtra Factor to travel America with One Direction.

The singer and TV host was rumoured to be planning a tour of the States as 1D‘s support act – at the same time X Factor auditions are set to take place.

Olly wants to crack America – and who can blame him for that?’ a source tells The Sun.

‘The One Direction lads are going down a storm over there so their management are looking at getting them back out there as soon as possible after their current tour finishes on Friday.’

1D are currently supporting Big Time Rush and are proving a real hit with the American crowd – and it seems Olly is keen to follow that success.

But he won’t be gigging with the fivesome any time soon. 

‘Touring with One Direction?? First I’ve heard of it….lol x,’ Tweets Olly, 27.
