Good golly, were we jolly to meet Olly! ... New Waltham family pose with pop star Murs
RIHANNA, Amy Winehouse, Eva Mendes, Paul Weller and Olly Murs – this New Waltham family is seeing stars.
The Button family go on holiday every Christmas and it seems like whenever they do, they come across some of the world's biggest celebrities.
Flying to Barbados they have come across singers Rihanna and the late Amy Winehouse, actor Eva Mendes and, flying to LA, rock God Paul Weller.
However, this year, they actually managed to spot heart-throb Olly Murs outside. The X Factor star was in the Oceans 2 hotel in famous tourist trap The Gap, Barbados.

Parents Ian and Julie took kids Cody, India, Maddison and Kooper to Barbados over Christmas and spotted friends who said the Troublemaker singer was staying at their hotel.
So, the family headed over there to try to catch a glimpse of the famous quiff that drives girls wild – including India, 12, and Maddison, 10, who went to Hull to see him live in concert when he supported JLS.
Julie, 40, wasn't sure if it was him at first.
However, the brave mum chanced it and accosted the heart-throb, and the star happily obliged with photos..
Julie said: "He was looking tired and a bit pasty because he had only been there a few hours but he was really nice and happy to be in a photo.
"My daughters love him but they came across all shy, so I had to do all the talking.
"Obviously my sons were playing it cool a few metres away with my husband but I convinced them to get in a photo too."
The family appeared in the Grimsby Telegraph in 2010 when they were photographed with Amy Winehouse on another flight to Barbados.
They saw Rihanna on the same flight but the good girl went bad and refused a photo with the fans.
Julie added: "Amy was lovely – really bubbly and happy to get in the photo.
"I didn't even recognise Rihanna at first – she looked so different.
"She walked in front of me in the queue for food and I thought 'who does this madam think she is?'.
"Someone told me it was that woman who sings Umbrella but it didn't look anything like her.
But despite all the gorgeous female superstars the family have seen on their travels, only Paul Weller has managed to impress husband Ian.
Julie added: "Ian has been a fan since he was ten years old and he was sitting behind us on the plane with his family.
"It was Cody's birthday and Paul Weller sung Happy Birthday to our son. Ian couldn't believe it – it was a dream come true for him."
But, not much that happens aboard an aircraft can shock Ian – as Julie proposed to him just before jumping out of a plane to raise money for charity nearly 16 years ago.
