Wow we wasn’t expecting this at all.
Melanie Sykes and Olly Murs have been dating for over a year and the pair managed to keep is hush hush from the press for all that time.
Melanie who is 47 and Olly who’s 33 have said before that they where just friends but now it’s been confirmed that they are together.
A showbiz source has said:
“Mel loves a younger man and really fell for Olly when he got into shape late last year.
“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.
“Olly was getting in shape at the time and Mel really loved his new fit bod.
The source then continued to say:
“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.
“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.”
It was in April of this year when Melanie went to see olly in concert and tweeted after the event:
Not much can get me out on a Saturday night but this guy has! @ollyofficial#gig @O2 #ollymurs
We really wasnt expecting this at all but if they are happy that’s all that matters.
