Olly Murs has said that he is unlucky in love.

The 'X Factor' star spoke about his wish to find a girlfriend recently, but has not even been on a date for several months.

He told the Daily Star: "Girls always see me as a friend. It’s happened about ten times.

"A girl once dumped me because she said I was so small I reminded her of her younger brother. Gutted!"

He added: "I haven't even been on a date for seven months, but then I don't like normal dates. I like to go ice skating or do karaoke so I can see if she's fun and not boring."
