THE pop star is scheduled to perform in Bournemouth next July, so the Daily Echo looks back at when Olly Murs was spotted on a day out.

The singer had been enjoying a spot of crazy golf while hanging out at Sandbanks in Poole in February 2012.

Young fans, squealed with delight and mobbed the X Factor star as he played a round by the beach.

And Olly was on fine form on Thursday as he messed around by the seaside just hours after playing the first of two sell-out shows at the BIC.

Bournemouth Echo:

One lucky schoolgirl couldn’t believe her eyes when the Dance with Me Tonight singer appeared and jokingly ran off with her scooter.

Little Mia McClure, eight, was happily playing with sister Megan, five, when their idol popped up.

Mia, from Poole, told the Echo at the time: “It was really funny. I had to chase after him to get my scooter back. It was fun.

“We like watching Olly’s music videos on TV.”

Megan, at the beach with mum Nicky, added: “We all went and crowded out Olly and got a picture with him.

“Mia showed him the scooter and then he ran away with her scooter and we chased him.”

Olly, who is being followed by an ITV film crew for a documentary, and his dancers then stopped for a lunch at the Sandbanks Beach Café.

Youngsters inside flocked to have their photo with the star.

He stopped to chat and pose with each one, making it a February half term break to remember.

Olly and his band mates then jumped into kayaks and had fun splashing around in Poole Harbour, thanks to FJB Watersports Academy.
