Olly Murs is currently single, despite being linked to every famous single woman in the country.

And the Troublemaker singer – who previously dated Melanie Sykes – revealed he would love to find a girlfriend on The Voice, but is worried he might be sacked for getting with a contestant.

Which might put a slight spanner in the works…

The 34-year-old confessed his single status has become a running joke with his fellow ITV coaches, Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson.

Spinning these chairs could be the only way I ever could find love, the former X Factor host said.

Its like speed dating. I only get to hear their voice so it would be love at first sight.

Anyone else imagining a new dating show right now?

However, Olly poured cold water on his future romance plans before hes even got spinning, hinting a fling with a contestant could mark the end of his time on the show.

I dont think Im allowed to date contestants though, he added to the Mirror. I think I would be sacked. But you never know. Crazier things have happened.

It would be amazing if I did find love on The Voice.

Olls hasnt had the best track record when it comes to love – after confessing a former girlfriend was too embarrassed to tell pals she was dating him.

So much awkwardness.

During a recent appearance on The Jonathan Ross show, he explained: I did date a Chelsea girl once. She wouldnt tell any of her friends that she was dating me.

She said: “I couldnt possibly tell my friends that I am dating you, Olly”, and I was like, “But why? I really like you, this is going well…”

Not the best conversation to have…

She went: “No, Olly, I have to tell them youre my Essex builder because youre a little bit rough around the edges, Olly, I cant be telling people that Im dating you.”

Understandably, he admitted things between them didnt last long after that.
