We had a chat with your friend and now ours Olly Murs the other day and very nice it was too. As you’re about to find out, we asked him about hats, his views on ugly people and where he’d take us on a night out when he wasn’t messing about with his new chip fryer.
You’re welcome.
Hello Olly!
Hello mate, how are you?

I’m very well, how are you?
Good thank you. It’s good to talk to you guys.

Yes, what a momentous day this is for everyone involved!
It is a momentous day. I’m feeling very nervous about this.

Really, why?
No, I’m joking. I appreciate the last six months of stories, so thank you very much.

Last time we spoke you mentioned the search bar on the site, which has now been changed.

She is trying to re-invent herself in the US as an R&B singer but has yet to land a new deal.
