Olly Murs hoping One Direction will give him chat up advice in the US
The former X Factor contestant is set to support the boyband on their headline North America tour, which is due to kick off in May.
Speaking to The Sun, Murs admitted that he has had no luck in the past in the US when he's tried to eye up ladies.
He's hoping however that the One Direction lads will be able to give him some handy tips on how to impress the females Stateside. He said:
"The euphoria around these guys at the moment is great, they seem to be having a ball. I'm excited to be going along too. American women are gorgeous so hopefully they can help me with a few techniques and chat up lines."
He added: "I went to America recently and I wasn't even getting a bite. I was chucking the bait out but I wasn't getting anything back. I went out for a few drinks and gave a few cheeky winks but they were like, 'Whatever?'."
