British singer Olly Murs, 30, ran into a TV studio to get a picture with Russell Crowe – only to discover the actor had pre-recorded his interview.
Olly was devastated when he realized he had missed The Water Diviner star, who was being interviewed on British show This Morning, by a number of days when he rushed onto the set on Thursday, but presenters Phillip Schofield and Amanda Holden consoled the ‘Oh My Goodness’ hitmaker by taking a selfie with him instead.
Phillip told the watching audience: ”Olly Murs has just raced into the studio to get a picture with Russell Crowe – but the interview was pre-recorded!”
Despite missing out on Russell, Olly took to Twitter to share his selfie with Amanda and Phillip.
He wrote: ”Didn’t get @Russellcrowe selfie but I got one with these two lovely people @amanda_holden @Schofe @itvthismorning”
Following Olly’s missed opportunity, a number of fans pleaded with the 50-year-old actor to get in touch with the singer.
carolannuk tweeted: ”@russellcrowe can u say hi to @ollyofficial he just sprinted to this morning studio for a selfie with u, to find it was recorded last week”
And many thought it was hilarious that Olly had made such an effort to get a picture with Russell.
