Olly Murs: I’ve become Billy no mates
Olly Murs has become "Billy no mates" now that his friends are all in relationships.
The chart-topping singer has admitted to finding himself a bit isolated in the build-up to Christmas this year because he does not have a girlfriend.
He shared: "I have done something Christmassy every day in December for the build-up but I can’t wait to go out with my mates.
"The problem is they all have girlfriends so they aren’t allowed out any more unless they get a special visa.
"I’m single so I’m a little bit lost, I’ve been Billy No Mates. But now they’re free, watch out."
And Olly will be hoping to enjoy a much more pleasant Christmas this year than last, having spent the big day nursing a hangover.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "My worst ever hangover was on Christmas Day last year.
"My dad had this whiskey called Knob Creek, it’s a really strange drink but really tasty.
"On Christmas Eve he was filling up my glass quite a bit, then at 6 o’clock I woke up with this banging headache and it didn’t shift.
"So Christmas Day wasn’t much fun but it was the first time my dad and I had a proper drink together.
"It was a real manly drink. So as a result it was a really special hangover."
Meanwhile, Olly’s latest album, ’24 Hrs’, explores his relationship failures – and he admits it was an emotional experience to make the record.
He said: "A lot of the songs were about a break up so it was tough at times.
"But it’s not just about my girlfriend. I wasn’t perfect in this relationship, so I took a look at myself and wrote about me and my life from a different perspective."
