Louis Walsh: Olly Murs should stick to singing

Louis Walsh thinks Olly Murs should stick to singing.

The former 'X Factor' judge thinks the 'Kiss Me' hitmaker - who co-hosts the show alongside Caroline Flack - should quit presenting and get back into the recording studio following a number of awkward gaffes during the live shows.

Louis exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I loved Olly's mess up. But he made a mistake. He's a singer, he's not a TV presenter. He can just make records, he's a great artist. He works really hard."

Louis, 63 - who was axed from the singing competition and replaced by BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw earlier this year - is adamant no one will ever compare to former host Dermot O'Leary because he was so loved by viewers.

He explained: "Dermot was so safe, he was so professional and always had a nice tight suit."

However, the music manager had nothing but kind words for Dermot's replacement and Olly's co-host Caroline, as he believes she's great at her job, looks good and has a quirky personality.

He added: "I like Caroline. She's a tomboy. That's what I love about her."
