Olly Murs says he's sad that he won't be part of this year's Xtra Factor. The singer says he's not presenting the ITV2 spin-off show so that he can work on new music.
He said: "I think I just wanted to focus on this third album, promoting that across the world."
The star, who found fame after appearing on The X Factor, also says he's earned his right to play big festivals and gigs.
He was speaking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Nesta McGregor at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Londonderry.
