The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer says he is looking forward to playing against the 'Candy' star.

Olly Murs says he is looking forward to having a game of football against Robbie Williams when he joins the 'Different' singer on tour.

The 'Troublemaker' singer is set to support UK star Robbie on his stadium tour from June, and says the two are already planning a five-a-side football match to pass the time.

"Obviously the Robbie Williams tour is going to be huge," Olly told The Sun this week. "And on the football field it's Murs vs. Williams.

"We are literally going to have a five-a-side game. I've told him about it," Olly teased. "i've sent him pictures of me and the team. He's ready for it.

"I think he's secretly getting the guys in shape for it for sure."

The 'Troublemaker' singer went on to joke that he would happily cover for Robbie's headline set if the 'Candy' singer falls ill.

"If he got injured before a big show I could always cover for him, it's not a problem," Olly joked. "Joking aside, it'll be good fun.

"It will just be good to hang out with Robbie. It's also about enjoying it with the people around you.

"I think that's why Robbie's got me on tour, not just because he wants me to put on a good show but genuinely because I'm a good guy," he added."I'm a good mate of his and we can have a bit of a laugh."
