Olly Murs surprises fan by pretending to be waxwork – watch

Amelia Gebruers, 10, recently won a Pride of Britain Award for fundraising efforts

Olly Murs recently surprised a young fan by pretending to be a waxwork version of himself.

Murs went undercover to announce that the fan Amelia Gebruers, 10, had won this year’s Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Award.

Amelia was recently named the Lidl Young Fundraiser of the Year after raising £20,000 to help her dad and brother after they were diagnosed with life-threatening brain conditions.

Murs pretended to be his own wax work at Madame Tussands, surprising Amelia as she posed for a selfie with the supposed replica of star.

Watch the incident below.


Murs is the new co-host of The X Factor, along with Caroline Flack. The TV singing contest recently returned to ITV for its 12th series.

Olly Murs has also hailed Paul Weller for allowing him to alter a song the Modfather wrote for his new album.

The song ‘Let Me In’ was penned for the former X-Factor runner up’s recent LP ‘Never Been Better’. But Murs admitted he didn’t like the original version, claiming it needed to be “a little more commercial”.

He added: “I rang Paul with my version, thinking he’d say no, but he loved it. That gave me a huge confidence boost.”
