Olly Murs has revealed that he'd love to land an acting role in EastEnders!

Reveal spoke to Olly at the Capital Jingle Bell Ball with Morrisons at London's O2 Arena.

Fans of the 'Troublemaker' singer will also remember that Olly made a cameo appearance in American teen drama 90210 last year.

Speaking to Reveal at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball, OIlly tells us: "As a performer and artist, we always do music videos and I love the acting side of it.

"It would be a lot harder acting on an actual set like a film or a soap but I'd love to give it a go. I mean, I never like to say no to anything in life. Everything's a challenge. If it was there on the table and someone offered it to me, then yes I'd love to do it."

With a UK and Ireland arena tour kicking off next year, Olly concludes: "We'll see what happens, but music comes first."

Former X Factor star Olly will be hitting the road in March next year on his 'Never Been Better Tour'. Olly, who will be performing 16 dates across the UK and Ireland, will be supported on tour by singer Ella Eyre.
