Olly Murs 'Hasn't Spoken To Twin Brother In Three Years After X Factor Spat'

30 November 2012

'Troublemaker' singer Olly Murs has admitted that he hasn't spoken to his twin brother Ben in three years after falling out when Olly cancelled being best man at his wedding to attend the X Factor semi-finals in 2009.

The Xtra Factor host was close friends with his non-identical twin brother Ben, who even asked the singer to act as best man at his wedding more than three years ago. However, Olly, who was appearing as a contestant on the ITV1 talent show, had to break the news that he wasn't going to make the wedding as it clashed with the penultimate week of the live shows.

A furious Ben cut off contact with Olly and the rest of their family and sold his story to a Sunday newspaper. The twin brothers have not spoken since, but Olly says he is open to reconciling their relationship again.

"It’s three years since I’ve spoken to him. It has never been my issue; it’s always been his. He was the one who decided not to speak to me and my family, so it’s his call," Olly told the Mail Online.

"I am not too sure how we are ever going to be together again, but I feel for my parents. That is the real feud in my eyes. He needs to make amends with them before he makes amends with me."

No doubt Olly is missing out on sharing his recent success with his brother, which has seen he and his Xtra Factor co-presenter Caroline Flack give the show ratings a boost, in addition to his new single topping the charts and his latest album Right Place Right Time expected to do the same this weekend.

As if that wasn't enough, Olly is heading on tour with Robbie Williams in 2013, which will see the pair visit several cities across Europe on a stadium tour.
