Amelia Tank has no time for the Olly Murs controversy

Olly Murs has come under fire following the release of his song I Hate You When You're Drunk.

Some feel the lyrics make him sound like a, 'controlling,' partner, but his fiancée Amelia Tank would beg to differ.

The former X Factor contestant sings about someone in his life who's a, 'mess,' when they're drunk.

"Oh, you’re slurrin’ all your words, there’s make-up on my shirt / You’re dancin’ on the tables, can’t you see / That you look like a mess and you’re singin’ Whitney?"

In the chorus, he sings, "Oh, I hate you, hate you, I hate you, hate you when you're drunk / So quit actin' like a fool / 'Cause I hate you when you're drunk"

Former BBC DJ Shaun Keaveny slammed the track in a post on Twitter.

He wrote, 'Olly Murs is quite the sad, controlling boyfriend according to the lyrics of his new song, “I Hate You When You’re Drunk”.'

'I look forward to her reply song “I Hate You When You Sing”'

In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, 'Imagine putting a track like that out into the world, being proud of the sentiment? It’s totally mad!'

Taking to Instagram Stories, Olly's fiancée Amelia Tank responded, 'Many thanks for your concern here.'

'However I can confirm that I in fact love my NON controlling FIANCE even more when he sings and this latest single is actually one of my favourites from the album.'
