My dedication was seriously questioned in 2015 when the idiotic decision to replace Dermot O’Leary with Olly Murs and Caroline Flack ruined everything, alongside a terrible judging panel, involving Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, who cared far too much about being cool – and X Factor has been about being cool.
He was born Oliver Stanley Murs, 33, on May 14 1984 in Witham, Essex, to Vicky-Lynn and Pete Murs.
He has a twin brother called Ben and a sister called Fay.
“They were initially introduced through a mutual friend.
They started texting for ages and some of the messages ended up getting quite saucy. He was a fan of her gym selfies and thought that she had an amazing body." However, the pair have since ended the relationship.
Olly and TV presenter Melanie Sykes have been dating secretly for almost a year, The Sun revealed.
Olly, and his fitness fanatic lover, 47, tried to keep their fling under wraps by insisting they were just pals.He lost the coveted X Factor crown to Joe Mc Elderry but signed a joint contract with Epic Records and Syco Music and released his debut single Please Don’t Let Me Go in August 2010 and it went straight to the top of the singles chart.Olly has gone on to record and release four more albums, all of which have gone platinum and gone straight to the top of the albums chart.He also had eight top ten singles, four of which were number one.Olly has also turned his hand to presenting, which was kick-started when he sat in for Comedy Dave Vitty on the Chris Moyles Show on Radio 1 for a week.Olly famously fell out with his twin Ben when his brother’s wedding clashed with him taking part in the X Factor semi-final.
