Olly Murs kicked off his 24 Hours tour at London’s O2 on Friday with his usual upbeat attitude, but as he sang his playlist of hit songs, the popular singer became emotional. Olly, 32, revealed to the packed arena that he is still heartbroken over his split from his ex-girlfriend of three years, Francesca Thomas, who he parted ways from in September 2015. The Mail reports that Olly told fans: “It’s really tough going through a break up you know, we’ve all been through break ups right? It’s not nice to have a broken heart, mine’s still broken.”

The star, who is very popular with his female fans, went on to delight them by revealing his single status. Olly announced: “Honestly, I am single,” and then went further to say, “But this next song was written about me trying to find the perfect woman, my Mrs Murs, that’s what I’m trying to find.” Olly has previously spoken about his break up from Francesca, telling the Daily Star: "I'm still trying to get over how it happened – I'm trying to get over the break up really, you know. I don't think I'm ready to meet anyone else just yet. My mates keep trying to get me to go on Tinder but yeah, never say never."
