Olly Murs may be trying to make it in America but he’s already won over a member of One Direction!

When asked which member of 1D the singer, who opened for the UK band on tour last year, is closest to, Olly responded: “Probably say me and Niall [Horan].”

Adding: “Niall used to come to sound check and one day I actually came to sound check and he was singing and I said, ‘Oh, thanks now I’ve just lost my job.’ No it was great touring, and all the guys are great.”

If you didn’t get the chance to see Olly in action while touring with 1D, you can catch him performing at the House of Blues in Hollywood Tuesday, January 29. For ticket information click here.
