The Essex boy, whose new self-titled album is out Monday, was in Scotland recently to perform and attend the Radio Forth Awards bash in Edinburgh where he told everyone who would listen that he always gets a warm welcome any time he visits the tartan nation.
“I love Scotland. I think I’ve come up here more than I’ve been at home,” Murs gushed to the Daily Record.
“That’s not even a joke and I’m definitely going to be moving here in the New Year or definitely getting a place up here anyway.
The 26-year-old singer was particularly complimentary about Scotland’s legendary drinking culture. “For example today, 4pm and they’re all downstairs drinking having a great time.
“And certain people don’t do that, [they say] ‘we only drink in the evening’ but I feel that with the special Scottish people they really love having a good time and I think that I’m that type of character and that’s why I love them and why I think, I hope, they love me for being the same type of person.”
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga is said to be packing her meat wardrobe to move to Scotland.
She is reported to have said she will buy Yester House near Edinburgh and is looking to invest something like £8million. Yikes!
