Olly Murs has been hanging around the Take Me Out love lift this week.

The X Factor star - who is fresh from celebrating his fourth Number 1 album - joined Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness in rehearsals for the brand new series.

Posting a picture on Instagram Olly said: "Yes PADS! funny afternoon down at rehearsals with ya m8!! Right giggle..enjoy the series pal!!"

Paddy added: "No1 album and I've still got to get him a date!"

Olly revealed earlier this year that Paddy was campaigning for a one-off Take Me Out episode just to find him the perfect match.

Olly told ITV's Lorraine: "Paddy McGuinness is a friend of mine and Paddy keeps asking me to come on Take Me Out. I’m like, Paddy not just yet, not just yet."

But Olly isn't the only celeb Paddy is hoping to join his ITV dating show.

Paddy told the Daily Star newspaper earlier this month: "The one special I wouldn't mind doing is where all the girls are from all the different reality shows, TOWIE, Made In Chelsea, The Valleys and all the others."

It could see the likes of TOWIE's Gemma Collins, Geordie Shore ladies Charlotte Crosby, Vicky Pattison and Marnie Simpson and newly single Made In Chelsea beauty Stephanie Pratt all lining up behind the lights.

Another special that could be in the works would involve same sex contestants.

"There's been talk of it. I don't know if we will but I'm open to anything when it comes to Take Me Out," Paddy said.

Series 9 of Take Me Out is currently filming and will air in 2017 on ITV.
