Caroline Flack: Olly Murs and I 'nearly had sex'

Olly Murs and Caroline Flack "nearly" got intimate.

The 36-year-old television personality has revealed she very nearly had sex with her 'X Factor' co-presenter when they first started filming the ITV show together four years ago.

She recalled: "There was a time where we nearly did have sex. It happened at the first Judges Houses, four years ago. We had a lot of fun after filming and Olly was like, 'I'll come see you in your room' and I thought, 'Oh my God, is it happening?' I was like [to the tune The Stripper] dah-dah-dah-dah ...

"But nothing. We didn't even snog. I don't know whether we were just waiting for each other to make the first move. Maybe. But nothing happened."

And whilst people have likened her and the 'Kiss Me' hitmaker to 'Friends' character's Ross and Rachel - who finally get together after ten series of an on/off romance - she thinks them being a couple would "just be so wrong".

She added to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Once you've gone through that 'almost' phase you know it's never going to happen. People say we're like Ross and Rachel from 'Friends', but we're more like Joey and Rachel. Together as a couple it would just be so wrong."
