Olly Murs is planning to marry fiancée Amelia Tank next June, a year after the couple got engaged.
The singer, 38, has spoken out on his wedding plans, revealing the one condition he set for his partner in the months before he proposed.
He told The Sun: ‘We want to get married next summer. That is tricky because we got engaged in June so only have a year to figure it out.’

Olly went on to say he wanted to be the one to pop the question to Amelia, 30, explaining that he was certain she would have pipped him to the post otherwise.
He said: ‘I always said to Amelia — because we watch all these dating shows, Love Is Blind, Married At First Sight, Love Island, Amelia is obsessed with them — that the only thing I ask is that I propose to you. I know what Amelia is like. She is quite impulsive. She would have just proposed to me otherwise…
‘We were on a clifftop down on the south coast, loads of relatives were there, her brother took some pictures, and I dropped to one knee.’

The former X Factor contestant joked that it was lucky he didn’t tumble off the cliff after having surgery on his knee last year and in 2019.
During an appearance on The One Show on Friday, Olly said of his wedding plans: ‘We were talking off air, organizing a wedding is stressful and I am kind of leaving a lot to Amelia at the moment. But yeah, it is very stressful. Really exciting though.
‘I have never been married before, and I hope I never get married again. So it is going to be so exciting. Obviously Amelia is from Devon and I am from Essex so we are trying to plan where we are going to do it.’

Olly, who has been dating bodybuilder Amelia since 2019, previously revealed that their first official holiday together – a two week trip to Morocco – sealed the deal.
He told new! magazine: ‘We both definitely knew. After two or three days, me and Amelia looked at each other and said, “yeah, this is kind of it now, isn’t it?” We both told each other that we loved each other.’
Olly continued: ‘When we came back from that trip, Amelia said, “I knew straight away that you were who I was going to spend the rest of my life with”, and I said the same.’

Olly has been spending recent months writing his new album, titled Marry Me, which he has dedicated to Amelia.
The pop star recently signed to EMI Records and shared a snippet of the reggae-tinged lead single Die Of A Broken Heart on Instagram on Friday.
He said of the song: ‘It has that steel drum at the intro, which just gets in your head straight away. It has a very Gotye, Somebody I Used to Know feel to it, with a touch of The Police – and just a coolness to it. That really excited me.’

The star is once again eyeing a return to the charts after teaming up with BTS songwriters David Stewart and Jessica Agonbar.
He said: ‘I’ve never done this before. It felt weird writing with the same people constantly. But I loved the routine, and the consistency. We just kept writing good songs. They had a great vibe and an enthusiasm, and a hunger.’
The pop star’s last album You Know I Know made it to number two in the Official UK Albums Chart in 2018.
As the LP’s title suggests, there are songs about his bodybuilder fiancée Amelia Tank, who he asked to be his wife in the summer, including the emotional I Found Her.
The Heart Skips a Beat hitmaker is also set to begin on a UK arena tour next year, kicking off on April 21 in Glasgow.
