Simon Cowell has reportedly told Olly Murs that he'll have to ditch plans to launch his music career internationally if he wants to return to The Xtra Factor!
But the popstar intends to release an album in Europe and the US this summer, which may require him to fly out to promote it during the show's audition stages.
The paper quotes Olly as saying: "I really want to do it but when I asked Simon if I could just do the live shows, he said, ‘No, it wouldn’t be possible’."
His partner-in-crime Caroline added: "They asked me if I’d consider presenting with someone else. But... that’d feel just weird – I love Olly!"
The X Factor is set to return to our screens in August.
