Murs has remained estranged from his brother since not appearing at his wedding due to X Factor commitments in 2009.

His brother is quoted as saying: "I'm genuinely so proud of what Olly's done. But he's become a total stranger to me.

"I told him on voicemail if he didn't want to know me anymore it was his decision.

"That's when he told me to delete his number. He keeps saying I have to step up and make things right. Well, I've tried. Olly has no interest - he won't speak to me. He doesn't even want to meet my son, which hurts more than anything."

A spokesman for Murs has since said: "Olly and his family feel that this upsetting and distressing situation should remain private, and should be resolved out of the public eye.

"Olly would rather not comment publicly on this matter, which has had a profound effect on the entire family."

Back in April, Murs said of their feud: "We haven't spoken for three or four years. I hope he's happy whatever he's doing.

"It was just a falling-out over the wedding day. I just really feel for my parents - that's the real feud."
