Olly Murs has revealed he is dreading the day that his audition tape for Stars in Their Eyes becomes public.
The 37-year-old star told Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary on Friday's episode of This Morning that he sent in an audition tape for the famous singing show "many moons ago".
Murs is currently fronting ITV's Saturday night singing competition Starstruck, which sees performers impersonate famous singers and has drawn many comparisons to the classic show.
But he admitted that he once tried to get a slot on Stars In Their Eyes, before the programme was cancelled in 2006.

"They didn't call me up — luckily, thank god they didn't," said Murs as he laughed at the recollection.
He said: "I sent a video of me singing Ronan Keating's track Life Is A Rollercoaster. I'm not going to do it today because it's horrendous, but I never got the call.”

Murs confessed that the Starstruck producers are aware of the fact he did this audition, and he's dreading the tape eventually being released.
"I honestly think that clip is going to come out at some point," he said.
Addressing the similarities between Starstruck and Stars In Their Eyes, Murs said: "The difference with this show is we've got a judging panel, which is incredible.
“Then you get of course the fact there's three of them. It's really great fun. We had such a great time filming it.”
Starstruck sees three performers simultaneously deliver impersonations of famous music faces in an attempt to impress judges Adam Lambert, Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford and Beverly Knight.
The show airs on Saturdays on ITV at 8.30pm.
