Inside Olly Murs’ 40th birthday celebrations – from tribute from baby Madi to huge Sausage and Bean Melt cake from Greggs

Madi also delivered a very special present for her dad…

Olly Murs has celebrated turning 40 in style, with presents from his nearest and dearest, including baby girl Madi and, erm, high street bakery Greggs.

The singer and wife Amelia are huge Greggs fans. In fact, ahead of Madi’s birth, Amelia celebrated the impending new arrival with a Greggs-themed baby shower.

So of course the company had to get involved when Olly turned 40!

Olly Murs’ 40th: Greggs cake

Greggs was delivered Olly a giant cake shaped like his favourite Sausage and Bean Melt for his big birthday.

And, although the cake looked like it was filled with the star’s favourite savoury filling, once it was cut open it was actually a delicious red velvet cake!

If Olly was disappointed he only had to look in the drawers underneath the cake. They were filled with the pastries!

‘Presents’ from Madi

Olly Murs was inundated with gifts for his 40th – but baby Madi gave her dad a couple of her own.

The star posted a picture of himself with a peg on his nose and bags full of dirty nappies at the start of his birthday.

Later, he posted a video of his daughter in a babygro wishing her daddy a happy birthday.

She also got him a cute card. It read: “Happy first birthday as my daddy. One day I’ll say how much I love you but it may take me a while. My little heart is yours forever and I’ll show you that every time I smile.”

Olly also posted that Madi was the “only gift he wanted” for his 40th birthday.

‘I just wanted to have some fun’

In another post, Olly – currently on tour with Take That – shared that he didn’t want a big glitzy 40th birthday bash. Instead, he wanted a day out having fun with all the people he loves.

Posting a video of his activity-packed day, Olly said: “Thanks to @gravitymax_wandsworth for a super day out before the tour to celebrate my birthday!

“I really didn’t wanna do a party for it, I wanted to play games and just have some fun! This place ticked all the boxes! had everything from crazy golf, bowling, darts, sports bar, VR rooms, go karting etc was crazy!

“Thanks to Shane and the gang for helping me out with it! I’ll be backkkkkk,” he said.

Sharing a host of video clips, she said: “Happy 40th birthday hubby. So many special memories we’ve made and this next chapter is already my favourite!

“You’re the most incredible human and I am so lucky that I get to share life with you, and now our little Madi. Here’s to the next 40 years and forever! I love you SO much x.”
