OLLY Murs revealed he turns down requests to join Strictly Come Dancing every year but hasn’t ruled out signing up in the future.

The singer, 34, admitted he would love to be taught ballroom and a Strictly pro could be the perfect teacher.

Speaking to TV Mag, he said: “I get asked every year to be on Strictly Come Dancing too and again, it’s a case of never say never… It would be amazing to learn ballroom dancing.”

Olly turned down an offer from Simon Cowell to rejoin the X Factor team earlier this year in favour of continuing as a judge on The Voice.

The busy pop star recently released his latest album and has a telly special this weekend, and he admits his hectic schedule has impacted on his love life.

He said: “My love life has 100 per cent been sacrificed by me putting my career first. That doesn’t mean I’m not trying to find someone, I am.”

One woman Olly won’t be dating is Jess Wright.

Earlier in the week he denied the pair were seeing each other after they were spotted looking cosy at his album launch.

The 34-year-old insisted he wouldn’t go there with the former Towie star because his best mate is her brother Mark.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, he said: “She came to my album launch and the papers made out we’re dating but we’re not. I love Jess – she’s quality and we get on brilliantly, but there’s nothing going on. I don’t think me and Jess have ever been like that.

“It’s the ‘bro code’. You can’t date your mate’s sister, it would be difficult. I’m really good friends with Mark so it’s never going to happen with Jess.

“As much as I like Jess and she’s a really lovely person, we’re just really good friends.”

Back in October, Olly and Jess were reportedly seen looking very close as he launched his new album.

A source told the OK! at the time: “Olly was getting close to a trio of women at the party.

“And he was also cosying up with Jess.”

Jess is currently single after  splitting from Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice after five months of dating.

Olly is also looking for love and has a very clear idea of the type of woman he is looking for.

He said:  “I want a strong, ambitious, independent woman with her own path in life. That’s the kind of woman who attracts me. I don’t want to be the main person working, I want us to be equal.”
