The couple had been dating for around three years, although they kept their romance away from the spotlight.

He told Loose Women: “I’ve just gone through a break up with my girlfriend, which has been quite sad, quite a difficult couple of weeks.”

Olly also denied rumours he would date his X Factor co-host Caroline Flack.

He said: “Me and Caroline have always said hundreds of times (in interviews) that we’re never going to get together, we’re just really good mates.”

Olly also played a game of Snog, Marry, Avoid with the panel and revealed how he would 'snog' X Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and 'marry' Rita Ora, while 'avoiding' Sinitta.

“This is tough. Cheryl’s married, so maybe I could have a cheeky snog with Cheryl,” he said. “Me and Rita are around the same age, I could marry Rita. And I might have to avoid Sinitta I’m afraid.”
