Olly Murs planning song with McFly

Olly Murs is planning a collaboration with McFly.
The 'Dear Darlin' singer let slip he has already discussed the possibility of teaming up with a boy band to work on a song for his next album.
He told MTV UK: "I've spoken to the McFly lads, I'd like to jump into studio with them. Maybe jump in with the Lawson boys as well."
However, the cheeky star's dream duet partners are still his idol Robbie Williams - who he has been supporting on his Take The Crown Stadium Tour - as well as Robbie's former Take That bandmate Gary Barlow.
Olly said: "I've been talking to Robbie about my next album ... I'd love to do stuff with Gary."
The 29-year-old singer has been hard at work since coming second on the UK edition of 'The X-Factor' in 2009 and is already planning his fourth studio album.
He explained: "I'm just gonna mix and match, just try different things out.
"Because when you're writing you never know, something might just come out of the blue and you might write amazing songs, and sometimes it just takes some random session to make that happen."
