Olly Murs has confirmed he’s dating body-builder and Lloyds Bank worker, Amelia Tank.
The musician, 35, was first rumoured to be dating the fitness enthusiast, 27, back in September, but broke his silence about his ‘amazing’ romance for the first time on Monday.

The media personality beamed as he discussed his new relationship with Amelia, who was awarded with Pure Elite’s Bikini Pro World Champion title back in 2018.
When asked about his Christmas plans, the X Factor star shared: ‘I’m going to spend some time with her really, it’s been amazing. I haven’t had a girlfriend for four years at Christmas, it’s been a bit lonely. So this year is going to be great.’
Olly also said dating feels ‘fresh and new’ to him, in comparison to his long-term romance with ex-girlfriend Francesca Thomas.
The Please Don’t Let Me Go hitmaker explained: ‘They always say when you’re always looking for something and then it comes along, this is what it’s supposed to feel like… we’re having our own Christmas together. It’s going to be nice.’

He went on to share his hopes on eventually moving in with Amelia: ‘We’re not living together yet, but whoah, I can barely look after myself! Who knows? I’m in a great place and I love being with her so we’ll see.’
Olly is believed to have met the brunette beauty at an Essex gym over the summer, after exchanging flirty messages on Instagram.
The London-based communications manager, who is originally from Plymouth, balances a busy life working at Lloyds Bank with a gruelling fitness routine that sees her lift weights every morning.
Last year, Amelia revealed she turned her back on a life of partying with friends – and avoids annual family get-togethers in case she’s tempted to go off track from her strict diet plan.

She told MailOnline in May 2018: ‘My social life is at an all-time low while training and most nights I get into bed at 8.30pm to allow my muscles to grow – and have enough energy for my early starts before work.’
Olly was previously in a relationship with property manager Francesca from 2012 until 2015, with the pair calling it quits to focus on their careers.
The singer told Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine in November 2015: ‘You get to the point in a relationship where you have to decide what that next commitment stage is. We are both quite career-driven, so…’
‘I do [want to start a family] but I’m not ready for it yet. I want to become a dad when I’m not touring. I want to be there every day for that child. I’m not in that place right now.
‘It’s been difficult because we were together for three years, very together. Being with her was like being in a bubble – where I’d go to get away from the madness of my world. It was a more normal world. But when that bubble bursts it bursts.’
The talented belter has been romantically linked to former X Factor co-host Caroline Flack, Love Island’s Amber Davies, and even presenter Melanie Sykes.
Hinting he had a brief fling with Mel, 49, Olly said on Loose Women back in January 2018: ‘Mel’s amazing…there might have been something. I’m single, since the last time I checked, I’m definitely single. It’s just me in my bed alone.’
Earlier this year, he was reported to be dating X Factor: Celebrity star Zara McDermott after bumping into her at Sheesh in Chigwell, where they hit it off over their shared loved of music.

Despite liking each other’s images on Instagram, the pair denied claims they were in a relationship.
Filming for The Voice kicked off earlier this year, with the show expected set to air in January.
The format will stay the same, with hundreds of hopeful singers from across the country auditioning in front of the four judges – Olly, Sir Tom Jones, Meghan Trainor and Will.i.am – who will listen with their backs turned.
The panel will then base their decision on the sound of the hopeful’s voice, before they’re split into four groups and mentored by one judge each.
