Olly Murs is considering quitting his coveted presenting role on the Xtra Factor.
The singer will reportedly have to choose between fronting the ITV2 show and touring America with boyband One Direction.
The tour would coincide with the auditions stage of the next season of the X Factor and worried bosses are holding talks to see if they can keep hold of the former contestant.
A source told the Sun:
"Olly wants to crack America and who can blame him for that? The One Direction lads are going down a storm over there so their management are looking at getting them back out there as soon as possible after their current tour finishes on Friday.
"Olly's team are still working on a US launch date for his album, In Case You Didn't Know.
"The ideal time would coincide with a tour. But by attempting that he just will not be around to do the Xtra Factor audition stuff."
The insider added:
"It's quite a crucial show nowadays and can get up to three million people watching, so producers really want him to do it."
A spokesman for the star told the newspaper:
"Olly's album is now starting to break big internationally and this means we have to juggle all his commitments between promoting his own album and also doing the show.
"We are confident that talks will continue to be productive from both sides."
