Olly Murs has been talking this week about that Oxford Street ‘shooting’ that he got wrapped up in last year. Remember? The one that he was live-tweeting from Selfridges. The one that didn’t actually happen.
Well, Murs still thinks there’s something more to it all and that there’s been some sort of cover-up – but this isn’t his first conspiracy theory.
In 2010 a Popbitch reader remembers being in the Old City Arms pub on Hammersmith Bridge Road, watching a televised Man Utd v Bayern Munich Champions League game. He was sat on his own, when a “studenty looking guy” plonked himself down next to him and started up a conversation.
The guy started chatting about how UEFA had rigged the match so that Bayern would go through, that United just weren’t allowed to win this one, how it was all arranged by The Powers That Be. He apparently became very animated about it.
He left shortly before full-time. Which is when people on the next table came over to ask our man how he knew Olly Murs.
