Olly Murs – Hand on Heart is our music video of the week!

The Essex born former X Factor finalist Olly Murs has released the video for his new single Hand on Heart – and it may seem eerily familiar to fans of his new best mate Robbie Williams.

The black-and-white video was shot as a homage to Robbie’s best-selling 1997 hit Angels and features not only many of the same locations but even identical scenes and camera shots.

Olly – who has been supporting Williams on his recent Take The Crown tour – brought in film-maker Vaughan Arnell, who directed the original promo for Angels, to shoot his new video.

But the film has been made with the Take That star’s approval – and even features a cameo appearance by Robbie near the end as he and Murs share a kickabout on a council estate.

The Daily Mirror quoted Olly as saying: “I was really excited by the idea for this video and to get Rob involved was important to me.

“We had great fun filming it and I am so pleased it’s got his stamp of approval.”

Robbie went on to add: “Imitation is the highest form of flattery. I am easily flattered, and I love Olly.

“We always have a good time together and this was no exception.”

Hand on Heart is the latest from Olly’s forthcoming album Right Place Right Time, which is due for release on November 24.
