Olly Murs' new girlfriend is the last person you'd expect

Sure look, if he's happy...

Looks like Olly Murs is off the market and happily coupled up with someone very random.

The singer is reportedly dating TV presenter Melanie Sykes.

The pair have been seeing each other for almost a year now, according to the Sun.


There's an age gap of 14 years between 33-year-old Olly and Mel, 47, but they're believed to have bonded over a common interest in staying fit.

"Mel loves a younger man and really fell for Olly when he got into shape late last year," a source told the paper.

"They were initially introduced through a mutual friend. They started texting for ages and some of the messages ended up getting quite saucy.

"They were bonding over her fitness programme. He was a fan of her gym selfies and thought that she had an amazing body."


The couple began dating but were adamant about keeping it all under wraps, it seems.

"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."

The whole thing has been playing out under our noses this whole time too, as the pair have been flirting back and forth online.

Melanie shared a shot of her and Olly at one of his gigs on Instagram back in April and posted that he sounded "like an angel" in December of 2016.


Olly had been single since 2015, when he and his partner Francesca Thomas split.

Melanie also ended a long-term relationship not long before then - she and her second husband Jack Cockings parted ways in 2014.
