Everyone’s talking about: Olly Murs

The singer sought therapy after his a live blunder he made while hosting The X-Factor with Caroline Flack.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the singer and TV presenter said at first he “laughed off” the mistake of prematurely announcing that contestant Monica Michael was going home, but the resulting press backlash was so bad he ended up in therapy.

“The papers didn’t laugh it off — they made a massive deal about it,” Olly explained. “The media attention, and the social media aspect, upset me the most.

They really tried to take me to the cleaners. They tried to make me lose my job over a silly, small mistake. And when I went back to singing, it made me overthink what I was doing: ‘I’m going to forget the lyrics, what I’m doing …’
So that was something I needed to speak to a therapist about. And I’m not scared to admit that — that’s the stigma that men have.”
