The 47-year-old presenter has finally addressed rumours she is dating the 'Kiss Me' hitmaker.

Melanie Skyes has appeared to shut down rumours she is dating Olly Murs, by referring to herself as "single" in an Instagram post.

The model and presenter Melanie Sykes had been linked to the 'Kiss Me' hitmaker last week but it seems she's keen to put her two cents in on headlines surrounding the pair. 

Taking to Instagram, Mel wrote: ‘To all those writing shite about me and my life. This is what a single, happy, healthy, 47yrs old independent mother of two teenage sons looks like. DEAL WITH IT. (sic)’ 

With an age gap between them of 13 years, Melanie has always had a soft spot for a younger man, having previously been married to roofing contractor Jack Cockings - who was 16 years younger than herself.
