Olly Murs reveals he plans on marrying girlfriend Amelia Tank and starting a family


They only officially became boyfriend and girlfriend two years ago.

But now, Olly Murs, 37, has revealed he plans on marrying Amelia Tank, 29, and starting a family with her.

The singer was speaking to The Sun when he admitted that bodybuilding champ Amelia is the person he wants to spend the rest of his life with.

‘We just want to live our lives together’: Olly Murs has revealed in a new interview that he plans on marrying girlfriend Amelia Tank and starting a family with her

He told the publication: ‘If I balls this up, then I’m an idiot because it’s everything I want. Amelia is the person I’ll be with for the rest of my life . . . unless she gets rid of me! You just know, don’t you? And when I found Amelia, I knew this was it.’ 

Olly also said that he will ‘definitely get married’ to Amelia and start a family, before adding: ‘We love each other and we just want to live our lives together.’

While Amelia echoed her boyfriend’s sentiments, saying that she ‘adores’ Olly, and couldn’t see herself being with anybody else now. 

Olly and Amelia went on their first date back in 2019 at the gym after the singer noticed her on Instagram.

And ever since their gym-based first date, Amelia has been helping Olly improve his fitness, with the star admitting he is now in the best shape of his life. 

Olly said: ‘I’m 37 years of age and this is the best I’ve ever looked. I’ve never had a body like this in my life. Amelia really inspired me to make my body the best it can be. We’d get up in the morning, do a HIIT [high-intensity interval training] session and go for runs together.’

And the musician was also keen to point out that getting back into shape can help people fight Covid-19.

He said that by building up your physical and mental health, you have a better defence against the virus than if you do nothing.

And Olly added that he hopes people will see the work he has put in to improve himself and take on new challenges themselves. 

Amelia got into bodybuilding four years ago after reading about it in an article, and having already been into running marathons, she decided to give it a go. 

She takes part in competitions alongside her day job as in communications for a bank, and last month she defended her bikini champ title in Margate, Kent, with Olly watching.

Olly admitted he was left speechless by his girlfriend who was crowned overall UK winner in the Pure Elite pro contest, with the star unable to take his eyes off of her.

The star said he almost couldn’t believe that Amelia was his girlfriend as he watched her compete, describing her as the most attractive woman at the event.

Amelia spent six months in the build up to the competition working hard on her training routines and eating a strict diet, and she described Olly as her biggest fan throughout it all. 

And he was quick to defend his girlfriend, who is subject to abuse, alongside other female bodybuilders, as they are accused of not looking feminine enough. 

He said that the people who leave hurtful comments must be jealous because they are not able to build a body for themselves like his girlfriend has done.

And he admitted that knowing how hard Amelia worked for her body, only makes her more attractive in his eyes. 

The couple also revealed that humour is what lies at the heart of their relationship, as it helped them become best friends. 

Olly and Amelia’s first interview as a couple came after he recently revealed he choked up when he was asked to speak about his late friend Caroline Flack at a dinner in her honour.

The singer was one of a group of Caroline’s friends who took part in a recent charity walk which raised £30,000 when they trekked 24 peaks in 24 hours.

Olly told how he found the trek difficult and the group often reminisced about the former Love Island presenter during the walk.

Speaking on The Joe Wicks podcast, he said: ‘It was amazing. It was tough, physically and mentally, to go up and climb the Lake District – try and do 24 peaks in 24 hours. 

‘We managed to do 18. We couldn’t do 24. We didn’t anticipate the group was going to be from different levels of fitness, and also mentally and physically all of us are different.

‘I thought I was really tough. We smashed the walks and I got to the end and I thought ‘oh, I’ve dealt with this quite well emotionally’, I thought I’d be quite emotional.’

Olly recalled how the group all shared memories of Caroline over dinner but when it was his turn, he found he couldn’t speak.

He said: ‘There was times when we spoke about Caroline. There was times when we reminisced on stories because all of us knew her differently, and then we went out for dinner that night.

‘And, this completely threw me off guard, one of the girls got up and started talking and was saying thank you so much to everyone.

‘And all of a sudden it all went round the table and everyone had to say something. And I was so caught off guard, and they asked me to say something and I just couldn’t speak.

‘And I was just like “what’s going on?” Grief is so tough and even now it’s really difficult to even think that we did a climb for someone that in my eyes is still here.’

‘It doesn’t make sense that she’s not here. It doesn’t compute yet. I’m still coming to terms with the idea that she’s not here. That’s really weird.’

Olly told how he received a message from Caroline’s mother Christine who said she was proud of the group for doing the trek. 

He said: ‘When we were on the climb we were just sat chatting – me and Lou (Teasdale), who is one of her closest friends – and we were both like “this is so weird, what are we doing, we are walking for Caroline, this doesn’t make sense, she should be here, and we shouldn’t be doing this.”

‘But we were, and it was a beautiful thing, and her mum messaged me and was so proud of us.

‘It was really, really tough but we did it and we did a great thing for her family. We raised £30,000 for the Samaritans.

‘I do question all the time, “could I have done more?”‘

In February 2020, Caroline was found dead at her home after taking her own life, a day after hearing the Crown Prosecution Service would go ahead with a trial for allegedly attacking her boyfriend Lewis Burton in 2019.
