Olly Murs has backtracked over comments he made in a recent gig in Dublin, insisting today that he's not yet signed any deal to return to the Xtra Factor this year!

It was reported yesterday that the former X Factor finalist had 'confirmed' his return to the spin-off this year, alongside co-host Caroline Flack.

But taking part in press interviews for tomorrow night's Let Dance for Sport Relief 2012, Olly revealed: "I want to do it, but it hasn't been confirmed."

He told Celebritain: "It's too early, X Factor don't confirm anything until much nearer the time.

"There are no dates confirmed, nothing."

It was reported last month that Caroline Flack had already signed a deal to return to the ITV2 series when auditions start again in May.
