Olly Murs has had a pretty exciting few months – not only has he landed a role as a coach on The Voice but he’s also apparently been secretly dating a TV star!
It’s been reported that Olly, 33, is seeing presenter Melanie Sykes, 47, after romancing each other on the low for almost a whole year, having bonded over a mutual love of keeping fit.
“Mel loves a younger man and really fell for Olly when he got into shape late last year,” a source says.
“They were initially introduced through a mutual friend. They started texting for ages and some of the messages ended up getting quite saucy.
“They ended up meeting for a date and have had a whole series of secret dates at his house where she will sometimes stay overnight,” the insider tells The Sun. “They have both been determined for nobody to find out. It’s been a bit off and on and there’s a real physical attraction between them.”
She also praised one of Olly’s songs, Flaws, last December, having posted: “Love this track @ollymurs you sound like an angel makes me want to cry x’
He responded “Awwww thanks babe” and added a kissing emoji.
Olly is thought to have been single since splitting from girlfriend Francesca Thomas in 2015, whilst Mel separated from second husband Jack Cockings – who she met on Twitter – in 2014.
Both Olly and Mel have so far kept quiet about the rumours but we think they’d make a pretty cute couple!
