Caroline Flack And Olly Murs 'Almost' Had Sex At Their First 'X Factor' Judges' Houses: 'We Were Waiting For Each Other To Make The First Move'

Now we know what you’re thinking. Surely Caroline Flack has nothing left to say about her relationship with ‘X Factor’ co-presenter Olly Murs. But it turns out there’s one rather juicy story she’s neglected to tell us until now.


About once a week, Olly and Caroline are prompted to deny rumours that they’re anything more than friends, although she has now divulged there was a moment that things between them almost took a rather racy turn.

Speaking to The Sun, she’s now admitted they almost got together while filming their first series of ‘The Xtra Factor’ together, back in 2011.

She explained: “There was a time where we nearly did have sex. It happened at the first Judges’ Houses, four years ago.

“We had a lot of fun after filming and Olly was like, ‘I’ll come see you in your room’ and I thought, ‘Oh my God, is it happening?’”

Hilariously, she then “mimed running around putting on sexy underwear”, joking: “I was like [singing the tune to ‘The Stripper’] dah-dah-dah-dah…”

Unfortunately, though, when pushed about what happened next, she confessed: “Nothing. We didn’t even snog. I don’t know whether we were just waiting for each other to make the first move… maybe. But nothing happened.

“Once you’ve gone through that ‘almost’ phase you know it’s never going to happen.”

Last week, the pair raised eyebrows when they posed together in a photo-booth at the Cosmpolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year awards appearing to share a snog, though Olly has since insisted that nothing will ever happen between them.

He said: “We get bored of always getting asked the same question. I don't know why we always get it every week, every month for the last three or four years - we're just best mates. Simple as that.”

Last month, Caroline said that she and Olly had a “weird” relationship, also confessing it “wasn’t totally platonic”.

She explained: “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.”
