OLLY MURS hopes to shed his X-Factor legacy by taking up a chair on rival show The Voice.
The Dear Darlin’ singer shot to fame as a contestant on The X Factor in 2009, and later hosted the show before being axed in 2015.
Now he’s heading back to our screens as a coach on the ITV show alongside will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson.
And the 33-year-old ‘can’t wait to sit in the big red chair’ when series seven auditions kick off in Salford, Manchester, at the weekend.
‘I’m excited to mentor new artists and, without doubt, I’m in it to win,’ said Olly who replaces Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, 51, on the panel.
