Olly Murs is nursing a broken heart after splitting from girlfriend Francesca Thomas.
It’s thought that the break-up wasn’t acrimonious, but that the pair had simply drifted apart over time, exacerbated by his busy work schedule.
A spokesperson for Murs confirmed the break-up to Digital Spy.
According to this insider, Olly is said to be particularly gutted by the split as Fran is the first woman he had ever planned a future with.
“He always anxious that his relationship would struggle because he’d always put his career first”, a source said.
X Factor contestant Anton Stephans has moveed presenter Olly Murs with his final bootcamp audition.
He has been putting the hours in at the gym in recent months, but she didn’t like his new six pack. Tragically, her dad and brother were both diagnosed with brain conditions within weeks of each other, so Amelia decided to do something to help.
He told Fabulous magazine: “She misses the comfort belly, something to snuggle up to!”
“Olly are you crying?” said Caroline Flack, waiting in the wings. “I have to figure out how I can combine my work and relationship”.
