Olly Murs sings karaoke with Bradley Walsh, Sir Tom Jones and Emma Willis as he lands his own Christmas TV specialDecember 6, 2018
The 34-year-old star has landed the hour-long episode Happy Hour With Olly Murs which airs December 15th, and photos from set show The Voice UK coach bringing festive cheer to a star-studded audience.
Megan McKenna, Kem Cetinay, Chris Hughes and Rochelle Humes join in and sing karaoke with the Essex lad after he takes over an entire pub.
Putting on a jam-packed night of games, chat and performances of all his biggest hits, Olly looks every inch an old school entertainer.
The next Bruce Forsyth, perhaps?
Suited and booted wearing a satin suit and white trainers, he rouses the crowd with hardly a hair falling out of place in his familiar quiff.
But the Troublemaker singer recently admitted Christmas can be a painful time of year for him, because it reminds him of his long-running feud with twin brother Ben.
And he recently revealed that his estranged brother blocked hopes of a reunion by changing his phone number.
The pair fell out in 2009 when Olly, 34, was unable to attend Ben's wedding due to commitments that he had with The X Factor.
His brother went on to fall out with his parents as well, and Olly admitted on ITV's Lorraine today that Christmas has never been the same without his twin there.
Asked by Lorraine Kelly if he'll ever heal the rift, he said: "I hope so, of course, it's mad because every year I think about it, (will it be) 9 years, 10 years.
"I did text him for his birthday but he changed his number."
Lorraine consoled him and said he still has the rest of his family, but the singer added: "Well yeah but Christmas has never been the same."
Olly previously told the Mirror about the feud: “It’s difficult, it’s sad and it always has been a touchy subject for me because it’s not just me and him, there are a lot of other people involved, [like] my mum.”
He went on to reveal that he hoped that he would see his brother again “one day”.
Olly’s brother Ben changed his last name to Hart after marrying his wife as a way of distancing himself from his family.
Ben said in an interview last year: “I was very close to my parents but fame and greed changed everything.”
