Olly Murs Shares A Dating Disaster And Admits He’s Been Tempted To Try Tinder
We've all been there, Olly.
Olly Murs has confirmed that even celebrities have to deal with the plight of awkward dating disasters, sharing his bad experiences and making us feel a little better about our many, many past mishaps.
The singer, who sadly split from girlfriend Francesca Thomas last year, opened up about getting back into dating when he appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show.
Admitting he’s been tempted to try an app, the singer said: “I haven't tried any apps. I've been tempted to go on Tinder just for the craic and see what happens.
"I've been dating, it's been interesting... I think if they're in it and just going out with me to be famous, I'm a pretty good judge of character. But I've had a couple of strange dates.”
Sharing one particular experience, Olly explained: “It's never happened to me before but I was in this bar and restaurant and me and a girl had organised to meet up. I was at the bar and I ordered us drinks. So it's gone 15 minutes and I'm still there waiting, she said, 'I'll be there in a minute'... 15 minutes, that's fine, I can deal with that.
“Half an hour later I'm still waiting, texting her to check she's okay, and she ended up being 45 minutes late, and the barman just kept coming up, 'You haven't got anyone coming have you?', and I was like, 'Yes I have!'... 45 minutes.
“I was pretty smashed by the time she arrived. It did help the date. The date was okay, it was good."
He also opened up about how his new album differs from his past offerings, revealing that his split had a part to play: "I’ve never really written about personal things before, I have touched on it but a lot of songs I’ve wrote have always been happy feel good tracks so it was a chance for me to write about my ex relationship which was tough.
"For about two months it was pretty difficult. Ups and downs going in the studios and feeling really depressed.”
