Olly Murs considers using Tinder

Olly Murs wants to use Tinder.

The 32-year-old singer has been single since he split from property manager Francesca Thomas a year ago and admitted he is considering using a dating app to find love.

Speaking on 'The Jonathan Ross' show on ITV, he said: "I haven't tried any apps. I've been tempted to go on Tinder just for the craic and see what happens. I've been dating, it's been interesting... I think if they're in it and just going out with me to be famous, I'm a pretty good judge of character."

And one of the reasons he is considering a dating app is because he has had some "strange dates" recently.

He said: "I've had a couple of strange dates."

"It's never happened to me before but I was in this bar and restaurant and [me and a girl had] organised to meet up.

"I was at the bar and I ordered us drinks... So it's gone 15 minutes and I'm still there waiting, she said 'I'll be there in a minute'... 15 minutes that's fine I can deal with that...

"Half an hour later I'm still waiting, texting her to check she's okay and she ended up being 45 minutes late and the barman just kept coming up, 'You haven't got anyone coming have you?' and I was like 'Yes I have!'... 45 minutes, I was pretty smashed [by the time she arrived] It did help the date. The date was OK, it was good."

Olly recently admitted he was crushed when he revealed that he had a huge crush on The Saturdays star Mollie King but she actually fancied Taylor Swift's hunky ex, Calvin Harris, instead.

Olly said: "Mollie said she preferred Calvin (Harris). That's what I heard. I think she said, 'Yeah I like Olly, he's great, but I really like Calvin'. I was like, 'Oh cheers!' At the moment I'm not really seeing anyone.

"I don't date famous people, not really, I don't think they like me.

"They prefer other people! I'd never say no to dating anyone famous but I've never really met anyone that I've had that connection with. I just get attracted to normal girls."
