During the early stages of X Factor Robbie Williams mentored all the contestants and we clearly remember him saying something along the lines of, “I wish Olly was my mate” or “everybody wants a friend like Olly” we can’t remember his exact words but it was something like that.
So anyway, after performing together on the final show Robbie called Olly to tell him he was “gutted” he didn’t win and he then invited him to come and stay at his home in LA and play football on the private pitch he’s got in his back garden. An excited Olly explained:
“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.”
Aw, it really does seem like the beginning of a beautiful relationship friendship don’t you think?
