Murs says he is one fifth gay

Olly Murs says he is "maybe 20% gay". 

The 31-year-old singer - who has been single since he split from girlfriend Francesca Thomas last year - revealed his percentage after Sacha Baron Cohen recently joked that he is up to 31 per cent gay.

Olly quipped to The Sun: "I'm probably the same, or maybe 20%.

"I've got a lot of gay friends I get on with really well. I get on with everyone. Everyone's got a bit of campness about them..."

Olly also admitted that he prefers being in a relationship to being single but hasn't had a date in a long time.

He said: "I don't like being single, I prefer being in a relationship, so hopefully it won't be for too long. I haven't been on a date in ages though."

Meanwhile, Olly's romantic life might not be very exciting at the moment but he is thrilled for his friends Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne after they recently started dating.

He said: "They seem really happy and in love. I'm happy for them.

"I haven't spoken to them but look, they're both extremely good-looking people, do you know what I mean?"
