What has Olly said?

“When I had the operation my left leg had to be straightened and they put a plate in,” Olly said, speaking on Instagram Live.

“After three months the plate got infected so then I had to get rushed back into hospital, they thought it was sepsis.

Hey guys!! Quick update from me! I’m putting on a brave face for the gram 🥺😩 but this week I’ve been recovering from serious knee surgery, something I’ve needed for sometime. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to cope sitting still like this for the next few months 🤯😩 its going to kill me but it’s what’s needed. I’m also going to use this time as an opportunity to take myself off social media for a while – focus on my recovery and spend some time on myself, with friends and family. ‪Thanks for a super 2019! With the Voice Win and my Sell Out Arena Tour! Unreal moments! Loved it.. now it’s time for a rest. Enjoy the rest of your year you cheeky lot, don’t miss me too much 🤪 I’ll see you all soon 😘❤‬

“I was back at The Voice three or four months after it. I don’t know how I got to The Voice,” he admitted during his live video.

“It was so important for me to get my leg done because there wouldn’t be shows.

“Obviously with this knee I’m not being able to perform on stage to my best ability for my fans. I needed to give it a year. I need to do rehab.”

Olly is currently in isolation with his bodybuilder model girlfriend Amelia Tank.

The pair spending their time pranking each other and making TikTok videos.
