'He's An Amazing Man': Olly Murs Gushes About Robbie Williams Before Tour

Olly Murs and Robbie Williams have clearly built up a strong friendship, with the Xtra Factor claiming he is the perfect choice to support the Robster on his upcoming stadium tour.

The 'Troublemaker' singer will be supporting Robbie on his upcoming tour this summer, and Olly reveals his excitement at touring Europe with the Take That star whom he has described as "an amazing man."

The 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer told to The Daily Star: "This is the perfect time for me to do stadiums.

"Now I feel I can stand up there with Robbie, and I am the right guy to support him. What he said about me in the press conference to announce the tour was amazing. He said he sees a lot of me in him - and I see a lot of me in him, too."

“He always joked on The X Factor how I had no worries before I go on stage, which is true. He's an amazing man.”

Olly is up for 'British Male' and 'British Single' for his number one smash 'Troublemaker' at this year's BRIT Awards, and said he is stunned that Williams is only up for 'British Single.'

He said: “Robbie’s won the British Male award before and maybe when people were voting they wanted to put five people in the list who hadn’t.”

The BRIT Awards takes place tomorrow at London's O2 Arena, with James Corden hosting the event.
