Olly Murs set for Strictly Come Dancing?

Olly Murs has reportedly signed up for the new series of "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "You Don't Know Love" hitmaker - who recently admitted he is still struggling to get over his split from Francesca Thomas 18 months ago - is said to be looking forward to throwing himself into rehearsals for the popular dance contest and thinks it's just what he needs to finally get over his heartache.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Signing up for "Strictly" requires major commitment and several rehearsals every week. It leaves little to no time for a private life.

"It's the perfect way for Olly to occupy himself and he's hoping it will give him a new lease of life as he tries to move on from his split.

"His friends and family are thrilled he has decided to do the show and there is no doubt his fans are excited to see him wearing some amazing outfits."
