Olly Murs opens up about romance

Olly Murs has opened up about his relationship

Olly Murs has broken his silence about his romance with girlfriend Francesca Thomas.

The Hand On Heart singer is thought to have been dating the commercial property manager since they met at last year's V Festival, but although rumours of a relationship emerged earlier this year he has been tight-lipped until now.

However, the star has now confirmed they are an item, reported the Mirror.

Olly told Notebook magazine: "Now everyone knows I have a girlfriend, but being in the public eye can ruin everything.

"It'd be different if I was dating a celebrity but I want to give this a chance to blossom - and being in the industry makes it a hundred times harder."

The 29-year-old singer said he doesn't think his fans will mind that he is taken.

"If each member of One Direction can have girlfriends and be OK, I'm sure I can," said the former X Factor contestant.

If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
