X Factor host Olly Murs has confessed that he was so upset about splitting up from his girlfriend he broke down in tears watching a Wayne Rooney documentary .
The 31-year-old singer, who split up with girlfriend of three years Francesca Thomas in September this year, said he cried as he watched the BBC documentary Wayne Rooney: The Man Behind the Goals in October.
Speaking in the Times over the weekend, he revealed: “Usually, I am mentally strong. But, after I broke up with my girlfriend, I cried watching a Wayne Rooney documentary.”
Olly was reportedly left “numb” by the split, after previously describing the relationship as “life-changing”.
Following their split he revealed : “I’ve just gone through a break up with my girlfriend, which has been quite sad, quite a difficult couple of weeks.”
He was also forced to deny once again that he was dating his co-host Caroline Flack.
“Me and Caroline have always said hundreds of times (in interviews) that we’re never going to get together. We’re just really good mates,” he told Loose Women.
The Essex boy, who performed on the X Factor over the weekend, also admitted in the interview with the Times that he finds his life “repetitive”.
He said: “My job can be repetitive. I have to take hundreds of selfies a week. It’s just bosh, bosh, here you go.
