Olly Murs reveals girlfriend Amelia is paying the bills during coronavirus – despite star being worth £12m

OLLY Murs has revealed his girlfriend Amelia has been paying the bills during the coronavirus crisis, despite the singer being worth £12 million.

Speaking ahead of Soccer Aid, Olly spoke proudly of his long time love's ambition, and said that "one of the things I love so much" about his girlfirend was that" she was so ambitous and has a fantastic job, she gets paid really well and works for a bank in London."

He added: "Weirdly enough, at the moment, she's paying the bills at the minute because I havent been working… and I'm like, 'babe keep going, what do you want?

"Cup of tea? What do you want for lunch, and can we do a tiktok video?"

But Olly and pal Mark Wright praised Amelia for refusing to live off Olly's wage, with Mark revealing that "she wouldn't move in until you allowed her to pay half of the mortgage."

Olly has banked a monster amount since rising to fame as a finalist on The X Factor a decade ago and his huge bank balance is down to his money-savvy ways.

The star began paying himself the £1k-a-week salary several years ago to prevent him blowing his cash.

Olly said at the tme: “I have given myself a salary recently, because I think it's important. For the first two years I was like, 'Yeah, I'll buy that and this. Mum, what do you want? I'll get it for you.

“But then you watch shows like the Big Reunion and it opens your eyes to realise that this can all go so quickly, and you've got to be wise with your money. Even Ed Sheeran talks about paying himself a salary."

The Sun revealed in December 2019 that hugely popular Olly set up a firm called Icydk Ltd to handle cash from his singing career.

But financial statements filed to Companies House covering last year show that the firm now has funds of £7.4 million including cash at £1.7 million and investments at £3.2 million.

And two previous companies owned by Olly were closed down – with the cash in their coffers paid to the star.

Paperwork for Stanley Entertainments Ltd revealed Olly enjoyed a bonanza in four ­separate instalments of £1.6m, £250,000, £115,000 and £100,000 over two years before it was dissolved in 2015.

And Ongoing Entertainments Ltd was dissolved in the same year with £2.2 million being paid to Olly.

That all adds up to £12.4 million when you chuck in his earnings from Icydk Ltd.
