But he told presenter Sara Cox on BBC Radio 2 that finding love “is not that easy”.

Murs was being interviewed by Cox while she was sitting in on Chris Evans’s Breakfast Show.

When Cox asked whether the Kiss Me singer wanted to get married and have children, he said: “Of course!

“Listen, I would love to, I would love everything you have just said, I would love it.

“But I don’t know, I’ve got to find the right person.

“It’s not that easy, you know.”

Murs has been in America shooting the video for his song Unpredictable with X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

Cox joked that he would not find love in Los Angeles and needed a “proper British girl” and Murs replied: “Exactly, exactly!”

The singer previously dated model and property manager Francesca Thomas, but they split in 2015.
