ESSEX popstar Olly Murs surprised his wife with a Greggs-themed baby shower catered with her favourite treats.

To celebrate the upcoming arrival of their first baby, singer-songwriter Olly, from Witham, enlisted the help of Greggs to surprise his wife Amelia with a “Preggs” themed baby shower yesterday, Sunday, March 3.

The couple had planned a baby shower celebration with close friends and family at their local village hall in Essex, But little did Amelia know Olly was working behind the scenes with Greggs, arranging her very own “Preggs” themed celebration.

Olly even donned a sausage roll costume to mark the moment and celebrate with the bridal party.

Greggs followed up with the post, jokingly commenting: “Congratulations on your bun in the oven! The sausage rolls are on us!”.

True to their word, Greggs served iconic sausage rolls, in addition to Amelia’s favourite sausage, bean and cheese melts and other tasty treats, all served up in bespoke designed savoury bags featuring the “Preggs” logo, with a glass of pink fizz.

The request came in following an Instagram post which featured Amelia donning a “Preggs” knitted jumper, sending fans into excitement with one fan commenting “PREGGS, get the Greggs van on order!”

The couple wed in July last year on Osea Island in Essex, which featured an aptly named festival, Murs Fest.

The baby shower comes just before Olly is about to take centre stage with one of the UK’s most successful bands, Take That.

The band’s latest world tour, celebrating their ninth studio album This Life, begins next month.

In a previous announcement statement, Olly said: “I’ve had this secret for some time but next year I’m on the road with these legends, Take That.

“What a tour this is going to be. Gunna be a special.”
