"Me and Olly have a lovely relationship. It's a weird chemistry,” she said.

“We have the innate understanding of one another – we don't fancy each other and yet we don't not fancy each other.

"We're not girlfriend and boyfriend, yet we're not totally platonic either."

Both stars are currently single after Olly ended things with his long-term girlfriend Francesca Thomas in September, while Caroline split from music producer Jack Street for a second time in August.

The pair previously admitted that they did fancy each other when they first worked on ‘The Xtra Factor’ together in 2011, but agreed not to pursue any romance for the sake of their jobs.

“It all stems from a tweet she did in 2009, which she tweeted when I auditioned saying she fancied me,” Olly explained.

“And obviously then we started to work with each other and we were both single so it was kind of like we were flirting and having a lot of fun but then we realised this should never happen. If we want to work together we can’t be doing this.”

Caroline also revealed that her mum also holds out hope of her getting together with Olly, recently telling Lorraine Kelly: “My mum says, ‘Can’t you marry Olly? Go on, it’d be perfect!’”
