Olly enjoys OT tour

Old Trafford had some special visitors when pop star and lifelong United fan Olly Murs joined Reds legend Norman Whiteside on a stadium tour.

Season-ticket holder Olly took time out from his busy schedule to bring members of his band to the Theatre of Dreams, where he played in last year's Soccer Aid match. 

Olly's look around the ground, which was filmed by MUTV for a future episode of United 360, took in some iconic spots including the home dressing room and the dugout where Sir Alex Ferguson has plotted countless victories. The singer also visited the museum which showcases over 130 years of club history and celebrates all the triumphs in competitions including the Premier League, the Champions League and the FA Cup. Twice a winner of the latter, Whiteside was able to regale the group with tales from his own career - just as he does with fans who go on the club's regular Legend Tours.

Olly said: "I first did the stadium tour in about 1996 but it was nice to take my band there and great for us to be shown around by Norman and see parts of the stadium I haven't seen before. I'll never get bored of coming here - everything about it is amazing."

Olly's latest single 'Army of Two' is out now.
