Speaking of his dating life, Olly shares he’s shunned apps like Tinder. He explained, ‘I’ve met girls and had dates and I’ve done all that, but it’s just trying to find the right one. You have to go out and have fun with the wrong ones in a sense to find the right ones’.

Ol, we’re totally up for a terrible, terrible date with you. Just let us know, yeah?!
