Olly Murs wants to collaborate with Niall Horan.

The 'Grow Up' hitmaker admits that he'd more than likely end up getting distracted and start talking about girls and football instead of getting their heads together on writing songs, but he has left he door open for a duet.

He told the Metro newspaper: "We'd probably spend all day talking about women, going out and football ...

"We'd forget about writing the songs!

"Niall knows where I am if he wants to go into the studio."

And it seems, the 32-year-old Essex lad isn't the only person desperate to make sweet music with the One Direction star.

Shawn Mendes and the 'This Town' singer have been rumoured to be getting together to write a song for months, and the 'Treat You Better' pop star recently met with the Irish hunk and talked about working on a song when their schedules align.

Asked if the collaboration is happening, Shawn previously said: "Yes, definitely, it will. Eventually when we get time. I met him for the first time the other day, but it's funny because we felt like we knew each other because we were talking back and forth for a long time. But yeah, when we get the chance, I'd love to write with him. I think he's incredible. He's got this great, great vibe happening with this whole acoustic thing so I think I really want to get involved with it, if he is down. Which he is, I think."
