‘They gave me an amazing opportunity to be a coach and help other people. I’m having a great time on it, it’s great fun.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Olly and Simon for comment.  

Olly was reportedly offered £3million to join the judging panel of The X Factor, but the gig ultimately went to Robbie Williams.

The singer found fame as the runner-up of the 2009 series and has gone on to become one of the show’s most successful acts.

He presented the 2015 series with Caroline Flack before they were replaced with longtime host Dermot O’Leary, who returned to the show the following year.  

Olly recently revealed to The Sun’s TV Magazine that he is asked to take part as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing every year.

He explained it is a case of ‘never say never’, because he believes that being taught the art of ballroom by a Strictly professional would be an ‘amazing’ experience. 

However it might be a struggle for the hitmaker to find the time any time soon, as his hectic work schedule meant he had to turn down an offer to rejoin the X Factor.
