He recently confessed to a short-lived fling with Melanie Sykes, which reportedly sizzled out just before Christmas.
But Olly Murs, 33, has admitted that breaking up with his ex-girlfriend, Francesca Thomas, was a ‘mistake’ during a recent interview with Bang! Showbiz.
The Troublemaker singer spoke candidly about his three-year romance with the property manager, which came to an end in 2015, before it was revealed in November that she has since become engaged.
Heart Skips A Beat: Olly Murs, 33, has admitted that breaking up with his ex-girlfriend, Francesca Thomas, was a ‘mistake’
Olly broke up with Francesca in September 2015, although two years down the line he confessed to The Sun that his heart was still broken.
Touching on the subject once more, he recently revealed: ‘I think I broke my own heart by letting my ex-girlfriend go. But that’s my own fault. That’s probably the last time my heart was broken.
‘It was one of those ones where you break up with someone and you don’t really realise for about a year after that, actually, you’ve made a big mistake.’
However, despite Olly opening up about his heartache, he has insisted that a reconciliation isn’t on the cards as it’s been too long.

He added: ‘Look, it’s fine. I’m not really depressed about it, although it’s taken me a long time to get over her.’
However, the X Factor star has since moved on from his romance and was rumoured to have had a year-long fling with TV presenter Melanie, who is fourteen years his senior – yet denied the ‘year long’ claims earlier this year.
The duo were allegedly introduced by a friend before hitting it off over their shared love of their fitness, and his appreciation for her sexy gym pictures.
