Olly Murs On His Friendship With Robbie Williams: "We Trust Each Other"

5 July 2013, 16:43

The 'Army Of Two' star says he feels he and Robbie can tell each other anything because of their friendship.

Olly Murs says he and Robbie Williams have built up a great friendship over the past few years, especially since hitting the road together on Robbie's 'Take The Crown' stadium tour.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer says he is able to talk to the 'Candy' singer about things he wouldn't say to anyone else, and feels it's more like taking to one of his mates "back home in Essex".

I enjoy his company, we have a laugh and I think he enjoys having me around," Olly writes in an editorial for Daily Mail this week. "I don't feel like I'm talking to one of the biggest stars in the UK, he is like one of my mates back home in Essex.

"We trust each other and what we say to each other we know won't go anywhere else," the 'Troublemaker' singer explained. "We talk about everything - work, football, what happened in the news today, random girls. 

We talk about the girls we might have slept with or girls we've met along the way and Robbie tells me about his heyday and what he used to get up to. Just lad talk really," Olly continued.

"He says he sees a lot of himself in me which is an amazing thing for him to say," the UK singer added. "If I could have the same career as he's had over the past 20 years I would be delighted."
