Furious Olly Murs goes on sweary rant after X Factor block him from posting a video of his own audition for the show – The Sun

FUMING Olly Murs has been forced to remove his X Factor audition after being "banned" from posting it online.

The shirtless 36-year-old star ranted on Instagram: "Hello, its me in the f***ing video."

He told his followers: "I've just had to delete my audition on The X Factor because apparently there is a dispute between X Factor or something that I can't use their content."

He later shared a screenshot on his Instagram Story showing his video with an alert saying it was being blocked in "multiple locations".

The star tried to see the funny side of the situation, laughing: "So I can't post my audition because it's been banned by them. Wow."

The former X Factor host auditioned back in 2009, wowing judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Tweedy, Danni Minogue and Louis Walsh with his rendition of Stevie Wonder's Superstitious.

He became a runner up in the sixth series of the talent show, losing out to Joe McElderry, before launching a stellar career in music.

Olly has made a name for himself with upbeat hits including Heart Skips a Beat and Dance With Me Tonight.

The star has also remained true to his roots by presenting the Xtra Factor in 2012 and then later co presented the main show in 2015 with Caroline Flack, replacing Dermot O'Leary.

However he then went to become a coach on the X Factor's rival show The Voice in 2018, which didn't sit well with music mogul and former mentor Simon Cowell.

Olly explained: "I love Simon, love X Factor, nothing but love for the show, but just being on The Voice with the coaches, it wasn't about money."

"It was more about the chemistry we had as a team. If one of them wasn't coming back it might have been a different decision.

"I just love the show, I love the people on it and they gave me an amazing opportunity as a coach and to help other people. So I'm having a great time on it."


Olly recently admitted X Factor could do with a spell off screen, saying: "I don’t want this to sound bad, but I think the show needs a break.

"It doesn’t mean it is over and can’t come back. But it needs a break.

 “And it breaks my heart that it’s nowhere near as big as it used to be. It made me, so when I say that, I say so with a sad heart, because I don’t want it to not be on TV.
