Keep on running! Red-faced Olly Murs splits his trousers while warming up for Sport Relief Mile
Poor Olly Murs. The singer has been working hard to lose a few pounds as he completes his first arena tour, but it appears as though he may have some work still to do.
The X Factor runner-up was left red faced after his trousers split while filming of a warm-up routine video for the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile.
Of course, the 27-year-old's choice in workout wear was likely to be the reason for the embarrassing wardrobe malfunction, rather than Murs' figure.

Olly wore a pair of brown skinny jeans to film the video, which few trainers would advise to be appropriate workout wear.
The Dance With Me Tonight singer laughed off the mishap, which occurred as he was showing viewers some simple stretches.
The Xtra Factor host joked: 'So when you do it make sure you're not wearing tight trousers, make sure you've got a nice pair of loose shorts on.'
