The Voice UK coach Olly Murs, 35, recently headed home from his trip to Bali with his girlfriend Amelia Tank where he revealed it’s “been hard to crack a smile”. It comes after the news of his former X Factor co-star and friend Caroline Flack died at the age of 40.
In view of his 2.9 million followers, Olly shared a snap of himself beaming at the camera, sporting his new beach blonde hairstyle.
He wrote: “Finally after 17hrs flying I’m home (think I’m now a sudoku king btw) wow it’s been hard to crack a smile this past week but this face is happy to be home, to see my family an friends which is much needed and get back to work. Love to you all.”(sic)
Olly also took to the picture-sharing site last week, where he thanked his girlfriend for being a “shoulder to cry on” last week.
Praising Amelia, he wrote: “When I needed a cry you gave me a shoulder, when I needed space you let me have it.

“When I needed a kiss you said only on this f*****g swing. But literally thanks for the last few days, hope I didn’t ruin the last week of your awesome family holiday darlin. (sic).”
He accompanied the sweet post with a picture of the pair kissing on a swing during a stunning getaway.
The emotional post sparked a wave of support from fans who said they had been “thinking” of him.
One person said: “This is literally the cutest!! Sending you all my love Olly! Keep strong for Cazza.”
After her success on Strictly Come Dancing in 2014, Simon Cowell asked Caroline to host The X Factor alongside Olly in 2015.
The pair had only hosted the show for one series – as Olly was signed for a one-year contract – but later admitted they hadn’t seen each other “in a while”.
The Essex-born star said: “I haven’t stopped crying since the news, after we stopped working together in 2015 we didn’t see each other as much as we should have…
“But we always spoke on the phone or messaged plus whenever I did see ya out and about, like a sister we’d just kiss and make up and was back being us every single time.”
