Olly Murs has revealed he's backing Laura Whitmore in the current series of Strictly Come Dancing.
TV presenter Whitmore is paired with professional dancer Giovanni Pernice, and has so far survived six weeks in the competition.
At the Pride of Britain Awards, Murs told talkRADIO reporters Johnny Seifert and Alex Farrell: “I have to back Laura Whitmore just because she’s my friend, and I really hope she smashes it. I think she’s doing great, I think she’s growing every week.
"I think they’re all fantastic, it’s been a really good year, Strictly have got some really good celebrities and it’s really hard to pick who’s going to win at the moment.”
