Olly Murs thinks his youth is uninspiring for song writing

Singer Olly Murs has revealed that his youth often causes problems where inspiration for new material is concerned so he often uses his friends' experiences in his songs. 

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, the 'Thinking of Me' star explained that only being 27-years-old means that he is still developing and has only had "three or four girlfriends" since school:

"You can only experience so much as a 27 year old, I've only had three or four girlfriends since I went to school."

"You can't delve into everything, you can go to your friends though, see what they're going through."

"So when one of them has split up with their girlfriend you find yourself there, going, 'So... How upset are you? Keep explaining, Were you crying the other night? OK, explain,' and writing it all down."

Murs also unveiled plans of a UK tour for 2012 after replying to a fan's question on Twitter, although he admitted he "just started plans last week" so no further details have been confirmed as of yet. Watch his latest video for 'Heart Skips a Beat' below:
