Olly Murs usually ''ignores'' any ''really good looking girls'' who approach him, because he can never believe they would normally want to chat with him.

Olly Murs usually "ignores" any "really good looking girls" who approach him.

The 'Thinking of Me' hitmaker said while he gets approached by beautiful girls he can never believe they want to chat to him and is wary of their true intentions, so he prefers to keep himself to himself.

Speaking ahead of his performance at the re-opening of Nando's Bullring in Birmingham, he told BANG Showbiz: "I get these girls throwing themselves at me, but nine times out of 10 they're really, really good looking girls that wouldn't even talk to me otherwise, so I kind of just ignore it really."

The 'Heart Skips a Beat' singer also admits he's had trouble finding love since he competed on 'The X Factor' in 2009, because he's always moving around on tour and meeting new people.

He added: "I haven't dated a girl in a very long time. You become a public figure, people know you on the television, people know more about you than you do about yourself, so if you take a girl out on a date and she obviously already knows you from the telly, knows your music, knows things about you.

"Sometimes you just kind of know she's there for your money or your fame, and that's upsetting."

Olly performed an acoustic set for 300 hundred lucky fans at the re-opening of the restaurant in the city's Bullring shopping centre, alongside Rizzle Kicks and Loick Essien.
