Olly Murs was delighted to get the endorsement of Modfather Paul Weller

Olly Murs has revealed Paul Weller wrote a song especially for him after he impressed the Modfather with a cover of one of his tunes.

The former X Factor star's new album Never Been Better includes a soulful track Let Me In, which he revealed to The Sun was written for him by the former Jam frontman after he heard Olly's cover of Broken Stones.

Olly revealed: "I was at a gig and Paul came up to me and said, 'I loved the version of Broken Stones you did.' He said, 'Are you writing at the moment? I'll send you some songs.' We went into the studio and reworked one."

He added: "To get an endorsement from the Modfather himself is special. He's a musical legend."

Olly has also collaborated with US X Factor judge Demi Lovato and Travie McCoy features on his upcoming single Wrapped Up.
