Olly Murs reveals he wants to mend relationship with his estranged twin brother after ten years

Olly Murs has revealed he wants to mend his relationship with his twin brother Ben Hart after being estranged for ten years.

The 35 year old teared up talking about the ten year rift between them during an episode of The Voice, after he watched twin sisters Katie and Aofie sing together.

The duo reminded him of his estranged brother Ben, who he hasn't spoken to in over a decade.

Olly, who recently revealed the horrific moment he found out his friend Caroline Flack had died, said: "A lot of people were reaching out to me that had relatives that they don’t speak to anymore, brothers or sisters or family members.

"They said, 'I'm in the same position and seeing you tonight has made me realise I need to make a change.'

"I still want to make that change with my brother, but it was nice."

Olly and Ben's relationship came to an abrupt end because Olly decided to go on The X Factor semi-finals rather than attending his twin's wedding, according to reports.

Since then Ben is thought to have made an effort to distance himself from the family as he took his wife's surname after getting married.

While speaking to fellow coach Tom Jones in the same episode, Olly explained that he's worried he won't have the same bond he once did with his twin brother and may not speak to him again for a long time.

The singer, who recently shared a series of emotional tributes to Caroline, said: "I feel like the next time I'm going to see him is when we lose somebody close in our family, and I don't want that to be the case.

"It's a shame — even more so for my mum. And I do miss having my twin with me. We had these two different personalities but we just had this bond."

Speaking about the family feud, Olly's mother Vicky-Lynn said it was "such a shock it made me ill" after her son Ben decided to distance himself from the family.

She told the Sunday Times magazine back in 2017: "I even thought I had MS – I had to use a walking stick because my legs were so weak. I also couldn’t work. I was on the verge of a breakdown.

"I’m much better now but my heart is broken. Ben’s broken my heart, and his dad’s, but I will not hear anything against him, I don’t think he understands what he’s done."
