Olly Murs Used to Be Pretty Gross

Olly Murs used to stink — not musically, but literally. He admits he wasn’t the clean cut, smooth Brit we’re used to seeing now. In fact, he was far from it.

“I’ll admit that I was a bit of a smelly boy when I was younger,” he told Top of the Pops (via SugarScape). “I don’t think I bought deodorant until I was about 14!” Geez, Olly, what took you so long?!

Don’t worry though: He assures that he’s currently as fragrant as a flower. “But now I smell great!” Phew. We were worried for a minute.

Still, don’t think Murs is perfect. He admits that he’ll disappoint you if you think he is! “I’m terrible at hiding bad habits from girls, but if you don’t like it then don’t go out with me,” he said simply. Fair enough, but it depends on what those bad habits are.

His other girlfriend qualification? Basically, if you want to go on a date with Murs, you better pop some Bean-o before you go.

“Farting’s completely off the radar though,” he confessed. “If a girl farted in front of me I’d be devastated.”

Despite Murs’ weird habits and lady love criteria, we’re sure he’ll have no problems finding a girlfriend … if only for one big reason.
