In a bid to reduce the waiting list for social housing in East London, Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has announced plans to construct 500 small, 3 bedroomed properties on the enormous face of pop sensation Olly Murs.
Addressing the London assembly this morning, Khan said: “With so many families living in temporary accommodation throughout the East London boroughs, we have decided to utilise some of the wide open spaces available to us and provide permanent quality housing for those most in need of it. We have earmarked Olly Murs‘s big face as just one of the options open to us.”
Murs himself was unavailable for comment, but his agent said “Olly is absolutely delighted to have hundreds of East London’s most needy residents setting up home on his gigantic face. He sees it as a great chance to put something back into the community.”
It is believed this is just one of a number of moves to use celebrities to improve conditions in the London area and follows controversial proposals to build a large heliport on Simon Cowell’s massive forehead.
