OllyandrobbieOlly Murs has said that Robbie Williams is his new best friend and has invited him over to his mansion in LA to play football with him.

The X Factor runner-up became good friends with the Williams after they shared a duet on last week’s X Factor final.

Olly, who lost out to Joe McElderry, has also signed up to play at next year’s Soccer Aid with Robbie at Old Trafford.

He said, “Robbie’s a really good mate of mine now. Great lad – we just clicked straight away.

“He rang me and told me he was gutted I didn’t win, but that he wishes me all the best.

“He wants me to go to his house in LA after the X Factor tour. He’s got a football pitch in his garden and wants me to come over and play football with him.

“He’s invited me to Soccer Aid as well, which I’m really chuffed about. I’m living the boyhood dream – I’m going to play at Old Trafford and I’m a massive Man Utd fan. Robbie was amazing to work with and it’s been an absolute pleasure.”
