Under the Instagram post by Love Island anchor Laura Whitmore, there were a number of celebrity well-wishers.

Vicky Pattison, a former cast member of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! “Go on, son. You can do it.” The coach, Joe Wicks, congratulated him.

As he explained to Good Morning Britain in 2020, “After my operation we got in contact again… As far as I was concerned, I was at home.” Because I had my hair shaven short, was missing a leg, and had a large stomach, I’m not sure why she’s here with me.
A Look Into the Personal Life of Olly Murs
It wasn’t until Easter 2012 that Murs was able to move into a five-bedroom house of his own in Toot Hill, Essex. Coggeshall Town and Manchester United are two of his favorite teams, and he is also the club’s chairman and a longtime supporter. He said that Ben was alienated from his parents on the Jonathan Ross Show and that the issue arose from Murs not being able to attend his wedding because of his X-Factor obligations. During his time on the X Factor tour in 2015, Murs admitted that he had turned to alcohol to deal with the stress of a new career and the pressures of a new stage of life. Following harsh criticism of his short-lived Xtra Factor stint in 2016, he suffered from anxiety and panic attacks.
When Murs appeared on the Graham Norton Show for a “regular performance” to promote his new album, he was overcome with intense panic and said his “heart was beating” and he “couldn’t breathe.” His panic episodes persisted even after his appointment as a coach on The Voice UK, so he sought treatment to deal with the stress. He then went on to write the song “Talking to Yourself,” in which he discusses his anxieties and urges other men to be open about their own mental health issues. On November 24, 2017, while in Selfridges on Oxford Street, Murs was caught up in the chaos caused by the Oxford Circus panic.
According to police and the media, Selfridges gunshots were a hoax and the cops covered up a terrorist attack, which led to a public backlash against him. As of June 4, 2022, Murs declared that his girlfriend had accepted the proposal and that they were engaged to be married.
