Olly Murs' brother refuses to end eight-year feud and says he's 'moved on'

Olly Murs ‘ twin brother has ruled out resolving his feud with the star saying: “I’ve moved on.”

Last week the Heart Skips A Beat hitmaker, 32, told how he wanted to make peace with Ben Hart.

Olly said: “I hope we just sit in a room and go, ‘It was a bit of a silly eight years, wasn’t it?’ “

But now, Ben has revealed to Sunday People how Olly had made no effort to get in touch.

He said: “I wish him all the best. But I’ve got my life and he’s got his. The last time I made contact I got the door slammed in my face.”

The X Factor star and Ben’s bitter fall out dates back to 2009, when Ben called the chart-topping pop star a “self-obsessed sell out” after he skipped his best man duties at his brother’s wedding to appear on the semi-final of The X Factor .

Ben has even taken his wife’s surname in a bid to further distance himself from the Murs family.

And Olly has confessed it’s one of the hardest things he has to deal with – and he’s ready to bury the hatchet.

“We never held a grudge, we never fell out when we were at home, ever, it’s hard now not ever having your twin brother around to experience this life that I have now got, knowing that we used to have an argument or a disagreement and we’d just get over it and it would be fine,” Olly said.

The singer, who was speaking on John Bishop: In Conversation with Olly Murs and reported in The Sun , added: “In my head I think that I really hope that the next time I see him, and I don’t know when that’s going to be, but I do hope that will be the case.

“It sounds weird but I hope we just sit in a room and go, ‘It was a bit of a silly eight years wasn’t it?’”

Earlier this year, Olly’s mum revealed that she was left on the verge of a breakdown after her son Ben disowned their family.

Vickylynn shared: “The difficulties we’ve had with Ben are complex, but it had nothing to do with X Factor . Deep down, I think Ben knows that. I never expected anything like this to happen to us because we’re such a tight-knit family.

“It was such a shock it made me ill. I even thought I had MS – I had to use a walking stick because my legs were so weak. I also couldn’t work. I was on the verge of a breakdown.”

Despite the family feud, Vickylynn insisted she still loves her son and promised to defend him, regardless of whether he reconciles his differences with Olly or not.

She recently said: “I’m much better now, but my heart is broken … Ben’s broken my heart, and his dad’s, but I will not hear anything against him; I don’t think he understands what he’s done. I’ll go on loving him and sticking up for him until I die.”
