You’d think that one of the perks of being an international pop star would be girls throwing themselves at you, desperate to be your girlfriend. Not so for chart-topper Ollie Murs, who spoke recently on The Jonathan Ross Show about a girlfriend he dated who refused to tell her friends that he was her boyfriend. Because she was worried they’d throw themselves at her international pop star beau? No, because he was, in her words “a bit rough round the edges”. Instead she told her friends he was her “Essex builder”. Sounds like her manners could do with some re-pointing... in the right direction!
