I dunno why she was with me!" Olly took a social media break last year, with his Instagram post over New Year marking his return. (Image: Matt Marsh / SWNS.com) The former X Factor star confessed he was glad to be back, but took time out because he found social media became more of a dating app than a social media platform. He also shared his happiness with how life is going, opening up on going public with his new romance. Olly said: "I know it's quite weird, my first post having a girlfriend. "I'm really proud and I'm really happy. I only try to spread a positive message on my instagram... be happy." Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
