Olly Murs wowed fans as he performed at Thetford Forest last night as part of their summer series of outdoor concerts – but it was a wardrobe malfunction that caught the eye of the crowd.

Cheeky chappy Olly was left wishing he was wrapped up when his famously tight trousers split during his set - getting himself in a ‘hole’ load of bother.

The former X Factor runner-up, who has had eight UK top 10 singles, was alerted to the rip by his mum which the crowd found “very amusing”.

Julie Starling, who was at the gig with her 12-year-old son, said: “His trousers split quite early on when he got down on his knees which was hardly noticeable but then as the concert went on they split a little more.

“Everyone found it very amusing - especially when it was his mum who told him that they had split right near the end of the concert.
