Olly Murs addresses his ‘feud’ with Simon Cowell

And also addresses some potential career options...

| Updated:

It’s been a real rollercoaster for Olly Murs since he first found fame almost ten years ago (We know, we feel ancient too!)

From his early days grooving across the stage on The X Factor though international pop success and now a successful stint mentoring on The Voice, Olly’s grafted and earned a lot of experience.

And in a new interview, he’s talked about some of the things he’s learned along the way, while addressing the so-called spat he had with Simon Cowell after taking a seat on The Voice.

It was reported that Simon was less than happy with Olly after he left presenting The X Factor to focus on a rival singing show.

At the time, an insider reportedly said: “Simon Cowell isn’t happy Olly’s swapped allegiances, especially as he left the X Factor to concentrate on his music.”

But in an interview with Now!, Olly has revealed it’s all finally water under the bridge.

He said: “It’s just silly, but I can see why because it’s The X Factor vs The Voice.

“At ITV, it’s not like that – we’re just one big happy family.

“When I first started on The X Factor, Simon was my mentor and he gave me this amazing career, but he’s never told me what to do on a day-to-day basis.”

He added: “I don’t ring Simon and say, ‘Is it OK if I go into work today?’ He’s not my boss. I haven’t got any ties to The X Factor.”

The interview also revealed Olly had been approached with potential job offers from around the world, and that he’d “jump at the chance” to crack America.

Sounds like a fellow Essex boy we know by the name of Mark Wright – no doubt he could show Olly a thing or two, if that’s the way his career goes.
