Olly and Robbie plan footie tour

Olly Murs is supporting Robbie Williams on his stadium tour

Olly Murs has revealed he and Robbie Williams are planning to have a football contest during their upcoming stadium tour.

The Xtra Factor presenter is supporting the Angels star on tour, and told This Morning he will take on Robbie at five-a-side footie at every venue they play.

Olly said: "I can't wait! When he contacted me last year and said about doing it, I just couldn't wait... it's going to be incredible."

He added: "Robbie is one of my idols, and to meet somebody that is exactly what he's like on TV - he's just such a down-to-earth guy. I have such a laugh with him. We've got a football team and football shirts sorted out - Williams v Murs - we've got all that planned, five-a-side football at every stadium!"

The 28-year-old singer, who was runner-up on The X Factor in 2009, also spoke of his dreams of cracking America.

Olly revealed: "My third album comes out in April, so when I finish the tour, I fly to Australia first and then I fly to America for three weeks so it's going to be pretty crazy and to try and break it there is a huge thing."
