Zara McDermott finds it "awkward" that people think she's dating Olly Murs.

The "Love Island" star was rumoured to be romancing "The Voice" coach after they met during a night out in Essex last month, but the brunette beauty is adamant they are nothing more than friends because he's "a lot older" than her.

Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "He definitely thought I was his type on paper. He's a lot older than me though. I feel really annoyed now because it's awkward. Everyone thinks I'm dating bloody Olly Murs. Imagine my ideal man wants to slide into my DMs but they think I'm with Olly. It's not ideal.

"I sing and play the piano and he invited me to watch The Voice to see how it works as I want to get into all of that. He was lovely to me and that's all I can say."

But, even if she was as invested into the 34-year-old singer as he is her, Zara doesn't think she wants to get into a committed relationship anytime soon after she was left "heartbroken" following her split from Adam Collard recently.

The 22-year-old reality TV star explained: "It's been about three months since Adam and I broke up and to be honest I was very hung up on it. It was very hard to let go. It took me a while to fully get over it because there was so much back and forth. I've been in and out of relationships since I was 19 and I'm 22 now. I need to learn to truly be happy on my own and that's my next conquest."
