The Xtra Factor host Olly Murs couldn't turn Simon Cowell down
But when Now meets up with Olly Murs, 27, at his record label’s west London office, he’s still the same cheeky chappy we first met two years ago.
As he takes off his trademark trilby and relaxes on the sofa, the singer admits that he really didn’t see fame coming.
So who did Olly sleep with to get the job on The Xtra Factor?
‘[Laughs] No one!,’ he insists.
‘Simon Cowell asked me and you don’t say no to him, do you?
‘Saying that, I’m not scared of him.
I knew that if I’d said no, it could’ve been the worst decision I ever made.
‘It’s an incredible position to be in.’
