The Voice UK: Olly Murs to replace Danny O'Donoghue?!

Olly Murs

X Factor runner up Olly Murs has said he'd love to join The Voice UK.

The show is need of at least two new coaches after both Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue walked out last month.

Danny said at the time: "I had two wonderful seasons on The Voice and as everybody knows I gave it my heart and soul and couldn't be more proud of the show and what we have achieved.

"My focus will be on The Script moving forward as we are about to embark on the most important part of our career as a band."

Rumour has it that Olly could be in line to take over, with rumours that the X actor finalist is set to join the rival reality series.

But Speaking to Capital FM, Olly insisted that he had not been "offered anything"

He said: "I was quite honoured [to read the stories] to be honest. It's a big job. Would I say no? I don't know. I haven't been offered anything."

And Olly joked that it'd be down to Simon Cowell to decide, saying he didn't want to make an enemy out of the X Factor boss!

"To be honest, I don't think it will be my decision. I think it will be more down to Simon and the X Factor's decision if they let me do it," he told the radio station. "I don't think I want Simon Cowell as an enemy - so I don't think that's probably going to happen."

Olly added: "If there was an offer on the table, you'd definitely consider it".

The Voice 2014 will air next Spring on BBC One.
