X Factor runner-up Olly Murs has revealed that he dreams of landing a part in EastEnders.

The Essex-born singer, who lost out to Joe McElderry in Sunday's final, told Metro that he would like to appear in a scene with the soap's long-standing Mitchell family.

Murs commented: "I would love to bowl into the Queen Vic and ask Peggy Mitchell for a pint."

He continued: "I'd confront Phil over something in the bar. It would be great fun."

However, the 25-year-old confirmed that his main ambition is to prove himself in the charts over the coming months.

"A pop career is my focus," he said.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Simon Cowell had decided to offer Murs a record contract. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
