Olly Murs is very comfortable with his sexuality.

According to The Sun, the gorgeous singer stunned reporters at Star Observer in Australia when questioned about his sexuality.

He said: “I’m a straight guy and I date women, but I get on really well with gay guys. I’m very comfortable with my sexuality

“The weirdest thing for me is when straight guys get really freaked out by gay guys. It’s almost like they’re insecure in their own sexuality. For me, I can be in a room full of gay men and have fun.”

He added: “The B-side from one of my first singles was called This One’s For The Girls, so I changed it to This One’s For The Boys when I played at GAY, and they loved it.

“The funniest thing is, I’m used to hearing high-pitched girl screaming after I play, and when I play to gay crowds it’s more like (drops 10 octaves) ‘YEAHHHH!’

“It’s like performing to the cast of the film 300,” he laughed.
