However, the man himself has now spoken out, sharing a hilarious response to dispel the rumours – with a few less-than-subtle Doctor Who references thrown in for good measure.
A spokesperson for the Years & Years singer told HuffPost UK: “Even though Olly is often contacted by cybermen, I’m afraid I have to exterminate this spectulation.”

“As nice as it is to see interest in this story regenerate, it just isn’t true,” they added.
“As Ood as it might sound, Olly is focusing on his music, for the time being.”
Olly previously appeared in Skins, Penny Dreadful and The Riot Club before winning widespread praise for his performance as Ritchie in the Russell T Davies drama It’s A Sin.
Interestingly, Olly’s It’s A Sin character Ritchie actually appeared in a fictional episode of Doctor Who in the fourth instalment of the Channel 4 drama.
