Could a romance blossom between The X Factor hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs? Mrs Flack hopes so!
Many fans are disappointed that the pair have never taken their relationship further than being just good friends though and it’s not just viewers that feel that way – Caroline’s mum does too!
The 35-year-old TV host – who recently split from boyfriend Jack Street for a second time – has revealed that mama Flack would love to see her settle down with Olly.
‘My mum still does [want it to happen],’ says Caroline.
‘My mum says, “Can’t you marry Olly? Go on, it’d be perfect!”’
Awww, cute! Whilst we love the idea of Caroline becoming Mrs Murs we won’t be getting our hopes up – Caroline’s already quashed the idea of a romance blossoming at any point in the future. Doh!
Her friendship with Olly, 31, remains as strong as ever though and she admits that she wouldn’t have taken the X Factor gig without her pal.
‘It was the Olly Murs thing that did it for me, that made me want to do it,’ Caroline explains. Funnily enough Olly had also set out the same terms!
Caroline admits: ‘We were doing the same deal without each other knowing it.’
Spooky! The presenting pair seem to be almost unnervingly in sync, so much so that they’ve even started matching their OUTFITS.
‘Usually I’m a last minute person when it comes to getting dressed, [but] me and Olly have decided to co-ordinate everything,’ Caroline tells Dan Wootton on ITV’s Lorraine.
‘Not too much. But he’s really into it, he phones me and he’s like “What colour are you wearing today?” and I’m like yellow and he’ll turn up at the door in a yellow shirt and I’m like, “It’s too much Olly!”’
Wow, these two are serious friendship goals.
