Olly Murs eyes summer 2023 wedding

Olly Murs hopes to get married next summer.
The ‘Die of a Broken Heart’ singer has revealed he and his bodybuilder fiancée Amelia Tank are eager to walk down the aisle as soon as possible.
He told Heat magazine: “That’s the plan [to get married next year]. We hope to get married next summer.
“It’s going to be a busy year, but one we’re really excited about.
“I just want to be married to Amelia – I love her so much, you know?
“Marriage is not something I’m scared of. I’m excited about it.”
The 38-year-old pop star is also excited by the prospect of starting a family in the future.
Asked if the couple plan to have kids, he said: “Definitely now that me and Amelia are where we are in our lives, yeah, it would be wicked to have a baby – if we can!
“We haven’t even tried to have children, so we don’t know if it’s possible or not.
“But it would be amazing in the future.”
The 'Heart Skips a Beat' hitmaker - who met the 30-year-old fitness fanatic at the gym - popped the question after three years of dating during their romantic getaway in June.
He captioned a clip of the pair hugging during their hike in the hills: "04.06.2022 [engagement ring emoji] Amelia Tank [white love heart emoji]."
Olly had previously revealed that when the pair do get married it will be in Devon, South West England, as Amelia is from Plymouth.
He gushed: "I don't think anyone is breaking my bond with Amelia, I think it's pretty much signed sealed delivered as Stevie Wonder would say."
When asked if wedding bells were looming, he replied: "To be fair though she is from Devon so if we are going to get married it would be out that way."
Amelia moved in with Olly shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown in April 2020, and he thinks isolating together made their relationship even stronger.
He added: “I couldn’t ­imagine being with anyone else now. Lockdown has only made us stronger — we’ve loved being in each other’s company.
“I just adore him, and I think we’ve got that thing where we just want the best for each other.”
