It’s hard to keep up with what’s occurring in Olly Murs’ love life at the moment.
Just as we were all coming round to the idea that he and Mel Sykes could be an item, a new contender has been thrown into the ring…
Love Island’s Amber Davies.
According to The Sun, the pair began messaging each other when they were both in Essex restaurant, (and reality TV start hotspot) Sheesh.
(These things never happen in McDonald’s, do they?)
A ‘source’ told the paper that Olly sent Amber a direct message on Instagram when he spotted her in the Chigwell eatery, having recognised her from Love Island.
The mole said: “Olly knew exactly who Amber was, as he had watched Love Island while the show was on during the summer.”
And if the loose-lipped info provider is to be believed, it seems Olly’s approach took 21-year-old Amber totally by surprise!
“While Amber couldn’t believe she was receiving messages from one of the UK’s biggest pop stars, she was wearing a very sexy outfit that evening and Olly certainly took notice.”
The news comes just weeks after many column inches were devoted to suggestions that Olly had been in a secret relationship with 47-year-old Melanie Sykes.
However, this was something Mel was seemingly at pains to deny, having posted a pic of herself on Instagram as the rumours reached fever pitch, insisting that her image was what a “single, happy, healthy, 47 yrs old independent mother of two teenage sons looks like.”
That’s cleared that up then.
Amber, meanwhile, has not been lacking in relationship headlines herself, having split from her Love Island beau Kem Cetinay just 132 days after they won the show – citing their “difficult” schedules for the break up.
Amber reportedly rekindled her romance with her ex-boyfriend Sonny Hall after parting company from Kem, with newspaper reports claiming they were seen ‘cuddling’ up to one another in the Sugar Hut nightclub, and an onlooker having told The Sun they ‘couldn’t keep their hands off each other’.
But that was all a whole two weeks ago, and now, the rumour mill is firmly pinning its hopes on Olly Murs being the latest love of Amber’s life – even though there is very little evidence to go on at the moment, and neither have addressed the speculation.
So it’s all a bit ‘watch this space’…
Or their respective Instagram feeds, where it seems all the modern dating action happens…
