X Factor star Olly Murs has admitted he isn't ruling out a reunion with ex-girlfriend Francesca Thomas.

Back in September, it was revealed Olly was left "devastated" after he and Francesca ended their three year romance.

According to reports, the couple decided to call it quits after the 'Kiss Me' singer's work commitments got in the way. But now, Olly has revealed he and Francesca could potentially get back together, admitting: "You don't know what the future holds."

In a recent interview with The Sun, Olly opened up on his recent break up, admitting the last couple of months have been "difficult".

He said: "It's been quite a difficult time. You make it sound like someone's died but after breaking up after three years it is a bit of a strange time."

At the time of Olly's break sources revealed his busy work schedule and the stresses of filming The X Factor and juggling his singing career were partly to blame.

They said: "He always worried that his relationship would struggle because he'd always put his career first. Now, with X Factor and his singing on the go, that's exactly what has happened."

However, while the timing may not have been right for Olly and Francesca this time round, the 31-year-old didn't shut down hopes for the pair to reconcile their relationship in the future.

"You don't know if you might end up going back, getting back with someone. You just don't know," Olly said. "You don't know what the future holds."

Following his split with Francesca, Olly was linked to former X Factor star Diana Vickers, but later shut down rumours that the pair were dating.

He had laughed off such claims, insisting that they were rubbish. "We're casually dating? No we're not," Olly said. "We find it funny."

Olly has also been linked to his co-host and BFF Caroline Flack and while he has said the pair will "never" get together, Caroline did admit her relationship with Olly isn't purely platonic.

Opening up to You magazine, she confessed: "It's a weird chemistry. We have the innate understanding of one another, we don't fancy each other and yet we don't not fancy each other.

"We're not girlfriend and boyfriend, yet we're not totally platonic either."

Since then, the pair have kept us guessing, thanks to their flirty exchanges while presenting The X Factor. Last weekend, fans began to speculate whether the pair were romantically linked, after Olly showered Caroline with kisses live on air.
