Olly Murs - Olly Murs plans proposal
Olly Murs is reportedly planning to propose to model girlfriend Francesca Thomas.
Olly Murs is planning to propose to his girlfriend.
The 'Heart Skips a Beat' singer is smitten with model Francesca Thomas - who he began in August 2012 - and after turning 30 last month, he thinks now is time to settle down.
A source said: ''Now Olly has turned 30, he's realised he's ready to settle down.
''He's told all his friends that he's planning the perfect proposal.''
The 'Troublemaker' singer had dated Francesca, 25, for over a year before their romance became public and Olly - who shot to fame after coming second on 'The X Factor' in 2009 - has since admitted he deliberately kept the relationship hidden to allow it chance to ''blossom''.
He said: ''Now everyone knows I have a girlfriend, but being in the public eye can ruin everything.
''It'd be different if I was dating a celebrity but I want to give this a chance to blossom - and being in the industry makes it a hundred times harder.
''I don't think my fans will be upset - if each member of One Direction can have girlfriends and be OK, I'm sure I can.''
Olly has also admitted to having had a string of secret romances since finding fame.
He said: ''I've been dating girls the whole time. In four years, there haven't been any stories about me.
''People even questioned my sexuality because of it.''
