Olly Murs finally landed in Glasgow on Saturday after he missed his first stint in supporting Take That at the OVO Hydro on Friday night.

The 'Heart Skips a Beat' singer was forced to cancel his support act minutes before doors opened on May 3 due to "unforeseen circumstances", reports Glasgow Live.

Olly was hit with a hurdle on his journey to the city after his flight to London was cancelled, leaving the fans in Glasgow disappointed with his absence.

Writing on X, Olly said: "So sorry to everyone at the @takethat show tonight in Glasgow, unfortunately I won’t be there, I have been at London Heathrow from 11am this morning for my flight but after several delays (check my Instagram) and then a cabin crew incident our @British_Airways flight got cancelled!

"Don’t think I’ve ever missed a gig before, am so annoyed! But am now in a car heading up for our 6hr journey for the Saturday and Sundays show right now."

Olly kept this promise as he arrived in Glasgow and shared a photo of himself and the Take That boys at the Hydro on Saturday evening.

The caption read: "Lads don’t worry I’m back for good" as Olly reassured fans he was ready for this evening's show (Sunday) as well.

However, there will be only one person in Glasgow that will be disappointed of Olly's return to the Hydro this weekend - which was Cambuslang singer Daniel Rooney.

The 26-year-old was scouted from a hotel bar near to the Hydro shortly before Olly's cancellation was announced. Scottish presenter Ross King watched the singer play at the Radisson Red and recommended his services to friend and Take That star Gary Barlow.

Daniel said he was "still on a high" after the "crazy" 30-minute support slot he performed at on Friday evening - and his joy wasn't over just yet as the singer was invited to be a special guest at Celtic Park during the showdown against Hearts yesterday.

In a wild 24 hours, the Celtic fan headed to the pitch at Parkhead as his club beat Hearts 3-0 to take a huge step in the title race in Scotland. While he wasn't able to sing as planned, Daniel was amazed at his "surreal" experience on the pitch.

Daniel told us: "The weekend just keeps getting better and better. I was buzzing when I got asked to perform at Parkhead. What an opportunity. I ended up not singing because the sound system wasn't set-up in time, so we just had a chat.

"It was surreal to be standing on the pitch telling everyone about my performance. I had friends and family texting me about it because I hadn't had a chance to tell anyone I was going to be there. It's been mental."
