Olly Murs On Caroline Flack: "I Care A Lot About Her"
X Factor star also addresses Cazza's relationship with 1D's Harry Styles...
Olly Murs has defended pal Caroline Flackover her relationship with One Directionstar - who is fifteen years younger - Murs stated: "Obviously, there have been stories about her she hasn't liked and she can always confide in me. I care a lot about her.
"She's a lovely girl and sometimes you can't help who you fall for. It was not a nice time for her, but I think she handled it really well.
"It was a tough time for her, but I'm friends with Harry as well and I didn't want to get involved in it too much. Caroline spoke to me about it a couple of times, but it's her private life and her affair to deal with."
Speaking of whether he thinks it'll be awkward when 1D perform their new single on this year's X Factor, Olly replied: "Of course it would be a little bit difficult, but I'm sure Caroline would be fine.
"She's very thick-skinned and I'm sure she and Harry have spoken since their split."
The Essex boy went on to add that despite his feelings for Flack, they are still yet to go on a date, claiming: "We still flirt a lot anyway, but it never got to the point of us kissing or going out and obviously Harry was dating her at the time anyway!"
