The ‘Dance With Me Tonight’ singer celebrated his nuptials with wife Amelia Tank on a private island with a huge party complete with a Ferris wheel and food trucks.

AceShowbizOlly Murs celebrated till 2 am with special guest DJ Craig David and had McDonald’s cater at his festival-themed wedding to bodybuilder Amelia Tank. The 39-year-old pop star and his wife got married on a private island in his native Essex on Saturday, July 15, with around 60 people at their nuptials, and they were then joined by further guests at “Murs Fest”, complete with a Ferris wheel, ice cream truck and food supplied by the fast-food chain famous for the Big Mac and McNuggets.

The “Dance With Me Tonight” hitmaker sang The Clash‘s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” even though he promised his now-wife he wouldn’t sing at his own wedding, according to a report. “Olly and Amelia had a food truck from McDonald’s serving up all of the classics, including McNuggets. They were lovin’ it,” a source told The Sun.

The wedding on the sprawling Osea Island – which is owned by music producer Nigel Frieda – had a teepee relaxation area, a merry-go-round, and a stage.

News of the wedding actually emerged through Olly’s showbiz pal Mark Wright, who shared some behind-the-scenes photos of their big day on social media. The TV star shared a snap of the groom on his Instagram page. Mark, 36, also posted a video of a plane trailing a banner that read “Just Married.” Olly and Amelia first met via social media back in 2019, and the loved-up duo went public with their romance in 2020.

The former “The X Factor” star previously admitted that he’d become a “groomzilla” ahead of his wedding day. Olly told the Daily Mirror newspaper, “I’m a groomzilla. I never expected it, I thought I’d be the opposite. I’m like, ‘No, no, no. Get rid of that, change that, move that.’ I didn’t know I cared so much about what the flowers look like but, honest to God, if I’m reincarnated, I’m coming back as a florist.”

Olly confessed to annoying their wedding planner with his hands-on approach to their big day. He said, “There’s a lady helping us plan the wedding and I said to her, ‘I don’t want ugly chairs, you know those horrible school chairs that are horrendous’. She said, ‘Olly, I’ve been doing this for a long time…’ “

Olly was a self-confessed “commitment-phobe” before he met Amelia. But the “Heart Skips a Beat” hitmaker quickly became convinced that Amelia was the perfect girl for him. He told “The Joe Wicks Podcast“, “I did that typical man thing and went, ‘I can’t commit, I’m not ready’. I called it off, and then I rekindled the relationship on tour. I’m so happy I did. When you know, you know.”
