Olly Murs has revealed that his current single Dear Darlin' was partly inspired by Eminem's Stan.

In an exclusive interview with 4music.com, Olly describes the meaning behind the track, saying: "This song was kind of a way of showing people that you don't have to text or tweet or Facebook.

"The old-school way of doing things is writing letters and I used to write letters to my girlfriends."

Then talking about how the song came to exist, he said: "I always remembered the idea of Marshall Mathers and Eminem when he did Stan."

He adds: "And that was one of the sort of ideas we had for this song."
