Olly Murs is not allowed to have girls stay at his house overnight.

The 26-year-old singer still lives with his parents in the same semi-detached home he grew up in in Essex and his parents do not allow him to have girls stay overnight.

He said: "I can bring girls round, but my folks wouldn't let them stay. It's not religion, they're just an old-fashioned family, and it's their home."

Despite being a well-known musician, Olly confesses he is still single and is up for a girlfriend, no matter where he meets them.

He said: "I haven't had a girlfriend for a while, but if a girl wants to talk to me, if she's attractive? Well, being a single man, I'm sure I'm going to take her up on it.

"I don't want people to feel they can't speak to me. I'm no different to anyone else, I've just got a job that's in the limelight and I'm able to sing songs. I haven't made it yet."

The 'Please Don't Let Me Go' hitmaker has also revealed he has done enough since coming second in UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' in 2009 to feel content, even if his career were to end.

He told You magazine: "I was put in the studio to write and produce the album, and I wrote my first single. Then I played for England in Soccer Aid at the beginning of the year - I was able to be a professional footballer for five days! So there have been all these amazing things. If it ended today I'd be happy to be able to say that I've got where I've got to."
