Olly Murs records new video in LA | Jamie Tuohy

Olly Murs has been busy Stateside, filming the video for his upcoming single, Troublemaker and he was seen getting very cosy with his dancer, in trousers that looked a few sizes too small!

The photos of Olly leave very little to the imagination, as the singer and Xtra Factor singer is virtually bursting out of his retro outfit. And while his super-tight clothing might be a little uncomfortable, the same could not be said about Olly’s relationship with his Kate Beckinsale-lookalike dancer.

Olly was seen kissing the gorgeous brunette on the set of his new video in Los Angeles, but alas, it was purely for the promotional pics.

Troublemaker is Olly’s debut single from his forthcoming third album, Right Place, Right Time and the track, which features American rapper Flo Rida, promises to be “an incredibly catchy, pure pop anthem.”

Cheryl soliders on after car crash | Jamie Tuohy

Pop princess Cheryl Cole was doing the rounds of interviews this morning, just hours after jetting in from LA, where she was involved in a car crash with rapper friend and manager Will.i.am.

Cheryl only returned from Los Angeles 36 hours before, but the Geordie singer wasted no time in hitting the promotional tour for her new single Under the Sun.

She joined Capital Breakfast hosts Lisa Snowdown and Dave Berry, wearing a sling after her accident and took the opportunity to shed some light on the car crash.

Telling Berry that she only had to wear the sling for three days, Cheryl put the initial shock of the crash behind her and joked that Will.i.am was to blame for the whole thing.

‘He’s a bad talker. He was talking the face off us,’ she said. ‘He was talking about Nasa and Mars.’

Cheryl was referring to the fact that Will.i.am’s single Reach For The Stars was recently beamed back to earth from Mars. She said that his motor mouth ways caused the Black Eyed Peas rapper to drive his Cadillac into the back of a parked car, as both he and Cheryl emerged from McDonalds.

Cheryl was left bloodied and in tears after the accident, due to the fact that her air bag never opened when the collision occurred, causing her to hit the dashboard full force, resulting in whiplash.

Both she and Will.i.am quickly took to Twitter to reassure fans that they were perfectly fine after the incident and Cheryl revealed to Fearne Cotton today that she’s looking to the future and is excited for Girls Aloud’s ten year anniversary in November.

What a trooper!
