Olly Murs says his new ITV show "Happy Hour" is "crazy and hilarious".

The "Dance With Me Tonight" hitmaker - who will be joining forces with "The Chase" host Bradley Walsh to film the commissioned special - has revealed that his one-off show will have a "Saturday Night Takeaway" vibe, and could turn into a series but fans will have to "wait and see".

Speaking on The Sun's Bizarre column, Olly said: "It's like "Saturday Night Takeaway" meets "TFI Friday". It's fun but crazy, in a pub environment.

"I've got some really amazing special guests - Sir Tom Jones, Emma Willis and Rochelle Humes. It's f**king hilarious. And obviously with me and Bradley hosting it."

In the exclusive one-hour special, Olly, 34, will host the show in his local boozer with a star-studded line-up of guests, and will be performing a medley of his biggest hits in his hometown of Essex.

The Creative Director for ITV Studios, Katie Rawcliffe, commented: "Olly is a firm favourite here at ITV. From when he won everyone's hearts on X Factor to now being one of our fantastic superstar coaches on The Voice UK.
