Olly Murs has hit back at trolls who say his bodybuilder girlfriend Amelia Tank is 'manly', branding them 'nasty'.
Tank recently took part in, and won, the Pure Elite Pro UK bodybuilding competition last month showing off her incredible physique on stage to win the title. Watch Olly celebrate the result below:
Despite being in phenomenal shape, there's always the odd keyboard warrior who has something to say. Now Murs has hit back at the trolls, saying those who insult his partner are just 'insecure'.
Speaking to the Sun, the 37-year-old singer said: "Unfortunately, the world we live in means people have a platform to say nasty things.
"There must be an insecurity in them - they decide to be nasty because they know that they can never get a body like that.
"But anyone looking at her photos and saying she looks too manly, I mean, what are they even seeing?"
While Tank told the news outlet: "You can't please everyone. The only thing that matters is that you feel happy - and I definitely do.
"And how I look on stage is very different to the rest of the year anyway - that's the result of a lot of hard work over a certain time."
Although Tank has to deal with the odd mean comment online, Murs went on to say plenty of people admire the 29-year-old for all the hard work she's put in.
He added: "For me, Amelia looks incredible and what I see when she walks into the gym is loads of admiration and people coming up to her giving her compliments.
"I get so many people saying, 'Oh my God, your girlfriend looks amazing.' "
Last month, Murs proudly showed off his other half in a post-competition snap on Instagram. Posing with his arms in the air and Tank stood beside him, Murs wrote: "And still.... undefeated-champ.
"Six months work, show postponed, lockdown to deal with and she went and bloody did it! Lost for words! Proud of ya darlin x now let's eat a McDonalds on the way home to celebrate... my treat."
Murs also credits Tank with helping him get into shape, saying: "This is the best I've ever looked."
The Voice judge said he is 'inspired' by his super-fit girlfriend and says the pair regularly take part in HIIT [high-intensity interval training] and running sessions together.
