Dear Darlin' star Olly Murs has said that he is "jealous" of new Xtra Factor co-host Matt Richardson.

The 29-year-old singer, who presented the show for two years, insisted that he's not going to watch the new series of the show.

Speaking to Daybreak, Murs said: "I told Caroline [Flack] I'm refusing to watch the show, I'm going to be too jealous to see a new guy stood next to her."

When asked about his love life, Olly said: "I think it's important if you're going to have a relationship for it to sustain," he said. "Especially being a celebrity or a popstar, relationship sell-by dates are a year."

The Dance With Me Tonight singer, who recently toured with Robbie Williams, hinted that he may work with the Take That star again in the future.

Murs further explained: He's a top guy, he's funny, he's brilliant to be around. You have to wait and see, that's all I'm going to say. Robbie would be a great person to write with. We could do a 'Let Me Entertain You 2'!"

You can catch The X Factor at 8pm this Saturday (Sep 7) on TV3 & UTV.
