Now, in a joint interview in The Sun, the ‘X Factor’ presenters open up about how their friendship has helped them nurse their broken hearts.

Olly says: “You’ve obviously had a split this year, so it’s nice to hear how you’ve coped with that. You have definitely helped me."

“I taught you all about the phases,” Caroline explains.

“I think it’s important to talk about that because it makes it easier. I literally did everything I could to try and get over it. I would Google things like: 'How long does this last?'"

Of course, rumours of a romance between the pair have heightened since they both became single, but Olly recently insisted nothing would ever happen between them.

"Me and Caroline have always said interviews we've never been together we're just really good mates,” he said during an appearance on ‘Loose Women’.

"Simon Cowell is always trying to stir it up, but we're just great friends. But yeah it's been a difficult couple of weeks."

While fans’ hopes of a romance were dashed, Caroline did recently admit that she fancied Olly when he first auditioned for ‘The X Factor’ in 2009.

“I didn’t work on the show and I was at home watching as a viewer. I might have tweeted, ‘I fancy Olly Murs’. That was it!” she said.

Catch the pair on ‘The X Factor’ as they host the show live for Judges’ Houses, this Saturday and Sunday (24 and 25 October) on ITV.
