Olly Murs wants to appear on Paddy McGuiness' ITV dating show 'Take Me Out'
Olly Murs wants to appear on 'Take Me Out'.
The unlucky-in-love singer - who has been single since rising to fame after appearing on 'The X Factor' in 2009 - wants to star in the ITV dating show, hosted by Paddy McGuiness, to get a girlfriend.
During a performance in Blackpool, he teased a band member about being single, then added: "We are in talks with Paddy McGuinness to get him on 'Take Me Out'.
"Obviously he's got to join the queue - I'm already at the front."
Although Olly moans about being single, he was showered with women's underwear during his performance, and even got hit in the eye.
The 28-year-old 'Please Don't Let Me Go' star has previously said he gets upset how on some dates he has been on, he can tell the girl has only been interested in his fame, rather than his personality.
He said last December: "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."
