Olly Murs admits he was really upset over The Voice loss

The Voice returns for new series in trailer from ITV

Olly Murs has revealed there was one year on The Voice when he got upset that his contestant didn’t win the show.

Speaking about the show, judges Anne-Marie and Tom Jones revealed it’s Olly Murs who is the most competitive out of them all.

Olly confessed that although all judges want to win deep down, it means a lot to him as he was once in the singer’s position when he was on X Factor.

He commented: “I take it more to heart and personally because that was once me. I really want them to win, but it’s not about me.

“If I’m the coach that gave them that chance then great. I’m happy for anyone who enters the show, as long as they show us all respect.

“I want them to go on to do amazing things and have great careers and excel.”

Olly has won the show twice as a coach during his time on the ITV show with Molly Hocking and Blessing Chitapa.

However, the 39-year-old confessed there was one loss he had on the show which he took to heart.

He added: “I think there’s only been one year that I got really upset I didn’t win.

“That’s because I knew how much it meant to the contestant, I felt like I let them down and picked the wrong song. “

Speaking about the way he coaches his contestants, Olly admitted he speaks to them all the time to try and take some pressure off of them.

He continued: “This year is no different. I have to give it 100 per cent that’s what you get in that chair – passion, energy, motivation, enthusiasm. I want us all to have the best time.”

This year will be the last time Olly is a coach on the show as he confirmed he’ll be leaving after this series.

Speaking about his exit, he said: “ I feel so proud of this show. When I started I never imagined I would be here for 6 or 7 years.

“I’m sad to be leaving but so happy to have been a part of the show. I’m hoping this series

will be the best one yet!

It’s not yet been confirmed who will be replacing the singer.

The Voice continues Saturday on ITV from 7.25pm.
