The X Factor star downplayed talk of him becoming the replacement host for the primetime TV show as he came face to face with his likeness.

And fans hearts skipped a beat as he took time for selfies on a rain-lashed Central Promenade, after flying into the resort by helicopter in between rehearsals for his tour which opens in Sheffield tomorrow.

Speaking as he took a good look at the life-size figure Olly declared: “It’s pretty weird isn’t it?”
