Olly Murs wants Michelle Keegan to set him up with her friends.
The 'Troublemaker' hitmaker is hoping the former 'Coronation Street' actress will bring some of her beautiful girlfriends along when she watches her husband Mark Wright take part in the Soccer Aid charity match this weekend because he's desperate to find a new lady love.
Speaking to Mark, who married the brunette beauty last year, Olly said: "Let's hope she brings some pals for me."
To which Mark added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She'll sort you out. Of course, she'll [Michelle] be there."
The 32-year-old singer hasn't been in a relationship since he split from his long-term girlfriend Francesca Thomas late last year but that hasn't stopped him thinking about the future.
Asked if he wants to settle down and have children, he said recently: "I do, but I'm not ready for it yet. I want to become a dad when I'm not touring. I want to be there every day for that child. I'm not at that place right now."
And, although the couple's split came as a surprise to fans, Olly believes breaking up with Francesca, who is a property manager, was the best thing for both of their careers.
He explained the split: "You get to the point in a relationship where you have to decide what that next commitment stage is. We were both quite career-driven, so..."
Meanwhile, Olly has agreed to run around the Old Trafford in Manchester this weekend alongside Mark, One Direction boys Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, Michael Sheen and Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay to raise money and support for Unicef's work for children in danger.
