The 'Oh My Goodness' singer joined the five-piece boy band for their tour in Canada last night.

Olly Murs has thanked One Direction's fans for giving him an "awesome reception" for his first night joining them on their North American tour

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer arrived in Toronto, Canada earlier this week for the 'One Thing' stars' show there last night (29th May), and says he was "blown away" by the audience's reaction. 

"WOW!! Thanks @onedirection fans for an amazing night!!" Olly tweeted yesterday after his performance. "Didn't expect such an awesome reception!! Blwon away!! Now watching the lads…"

The 'Dance With Me Tonight singer later added: "TORNOTO!! RULES!! Can't wait for THURSDAY now!!" 

Yesterday One Direction star Niall Horan tweeted that he couldn't wait for Olly to arrive in Canada ready for their show, which will see him supporting the 'Gotta Be You' singers across their current tour of North America.

Earlier this month it was confirmed that Olly Murs and Caroline Flack will return for a second year co-hosting The X Factor's ITV2 sister series The Xtra Factor. 

One Direction and Olly Murs are set to perform a second date at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada this Thursday 31st May).
