Olly Murs deletes sign song video after ‘learning the difference’ between Makaton and BSL – The Limping Chicken

Pop star Olly Murs has taken down a clip of him signing his latest single in Makaton for his “fans in the deaf community”, admitting that he had “incorrectly labelled the video” as being in British Sign Language.

The singer, who released “Die of A Broken Heart” on Friday, said in the video’s caption that he wanted to sign the song in “BSL SSE” and that he was taught how to do so by hearing influencer Isabella Signs.
