Olly Murs was runner up on 2009's X Factor and signed a joint record deal with mentor Simon Cowell and Epic Records.
His self titled debut album was released in November 2010, entering at No.2 behind Take That, and reaching double platinum status. Featuring Please Don't Let Me Go, Thinking Of Me, Heart On My Sleeve and Busy, it was the biggest selling record of 2010 by a debut artist.
His follow up album In Case You Didn't Know was released a year later, shooting straight to the No.1 spot. It has since reached triple platinum status, with over 900k copies sold in the UK. The album includes No.1 single Heart Skips A Beat ft Rizzle Kicks and Dance With Me Tonight.
Olly's recently released 3rd album Right Place Right Time shot straight to the No.1 spot with 127k sales, making him the fastest selling male artist of 2012. The album features his 4th No.1 single Troublemaker ft. Flo Rida. Both the album and the single stuck to the No.1 spot for two weeks running.
Olly returned to our screens in 2011 to co-present Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack, and has recently finished his second year on the show. He recently announced that he will be the special guest on Robbie William's Take The Crown European Stadium tour this summer, following his own sold out headline arena tour. The year ahead will see Olly continue to promote his music around the world and take his new album stateside.
