The Essex boys new track 'Please Dont Let Me Go' is sounding great on Capital and the video features a tanned Mr Murs partying around a pool surrounded by sexy girls and fit guys.
So after spending every week backstage at the X Factor at the end of 2009, it was great to catch up with Olly to talk music, Robbie Williams, Wayne Rooney and the ladies in his life.
Listen up ladies as Olly told us that hes still very much single: 'I just havent found Miss Right, so Im just a single guy enjoying myself right now' So what about celebrity crushes?
'There are so many! The other day I was in the room with The Saturdays who all really attractive and then I saw Pixie Lott in the room. Oh and if I bumped into Cheryl again, Id be like wow oh and Tiffany Page is quite hot, as is Eliza Doolittle. There are so many attractive ladies out there, see Im just a typical guy-every girl I look at is quite attractive.' But what about all the attention hes receiving from fans? 'I actually dont feel like a heart-throb at all, he modestly admitted.
Olly also told us that he enjoyed catching up with Robbie Williams at the recent Soccer Aid event. 'It was great to see him, we got to catch up and having a laugh. Take That back together with Robbie is just great isnt it? Now all my mates keep texting me asking me to get them tickets.' So what are the chances of Olly supporting the band on tour in 2011? 'Listen if people want to campaign for me great, can you imagine that but I want to get my single and album out there first.'
