Olly Murs of X Factor fame is considering quitting the hit TV show to join fellow finalists One Direction on tour.
Olly is slowly getting more coverage on an international level but is eager to crack the US market in the same way that 1D have, and he sees the opportunity of supporting them on tour as a great springboard with which to make a big impact in the USA.
Speaking with The Sun, a source said: “Olly wants to crack America — and who can blame him for that? The One Direction lads are going down a storm over there so their management are looking at getting them back out there as soon as possible after their current tour finishes on Friday.”
X Factor bosses are keen for him to stay on for the next series, and are considering letting him skip the audition shows to just present the live finals.
