ITV throws open the doors for Happy Hour With Olly Murs
ITV have commissioned Happy Hour With Olly Murs, a one-hour special produced by ITV Studios and set to transmit later this year.
The much-loved pop star and coach on The Voice UK will be heading back to his Essex roots as he takes over an entire pub to put on a jam-packed night of games, chat and performances of all his biggest hits. As he celebrates a decade at the top with his sixth album, You Know I Know, set for release on November 9th, it’s the ultimate homecoming party with a specially invited audience of friends, family and famous faces.
With the bar packed to the rafters, there will be laughs aplenty as Bradley Walsh – who Olly affectionately calls his ‘showbiz dad’ – steps inside. Emma Willis will be the resident Karaoke Queen as she hosts special singalongs for any game guests that choose to step up to the mic and entertain the crowd. Fellow Voice coach Sir Tom Jones will be dropping in to join in the fun and there will be a very special exclusive duet from Jennifer Hudson and Olly.
With multiple sold out arena tours to his name, there will be truly intimate performances from the multi-platinum selling star as he sings his classic hits as well as songs from his brand-new album. His latest single Moves will be one of those performances with Lady Leshurr taking to the stage alongside him.
Lucky super fans will mingle with the invited audience that will also include Olly's closest friends and family with more special guests to be announced.
Olly Murs commented: “We know how to throw a proper party back in Essex so I’m looking forward to welcoming everyone into my world to join me and my family for what will be a fun night in/night out for all. I can’t wait!”
Katie Rawcliffe, Creative Director, ITV Studios, said: “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. We're so pleased to be producing this show with Olly that will be filled with music and laughter."
NOTES TO EDITORS:
‘You Know, I Know’ is the follow up to ‘24HRS’ which Olly toured last year selling over 600,000 tickets across 24 sold out UK dates. Olly embarks on a 16 date UK arena tour next May including two shows in London at The O2 on May 16th and 17th with Rak-Su announced as special guests at every show. Ticket details and all tour dates can be found at www.ollymurs.com. Now firmly established in his red chair as a coach on The Voice, to which he returns in the new year, Olly has five multi-platinum albums under his belt, 4 #1 UK albums, 4 #1 UK singles and 6 #1 airplay tracks.
