Once a promising footballer, Oliver 'Olly' Murs' first appearance on TV was in an episode of UK game show, Deal Or No Deal, but he found real fame as the runner-up on The X Factor in 2009, losing in the final to Joe McElderry. After the subsequent X Factor Tour had wound up, Murs secured a record deal with Epic Records and Simon Cowell's own label, Syco Music, and spent most of 2010 writing and recording his self-titled debut album. The lead single, “Please Don't Let Me Go”, was released in August of the same year, and went straight to No.1 in the UK, beating Katy Perry's “Teenage Dream”, which was released on the same day. The album itself was released in October, and went into the UK album charts at No.2.
In April 2011, Murs began a UK tour in Wales, then went back into the studio to begin work on his second album, In Case You Didn't Know. The first single from the album, “Heart Skips A Beat”, was released in July 2011, and gave him his second UK No.1 hit, and the follow up single, “Dance With Me Tonight”, also hit No.1 in November, as did the album, becoming more successful than his debut LP.
In Spring 2011, Murs took part in the BT Charity Trek in aid of the Comic Relief Red Nose Day appeal, spending a week in Kenya's Kaisut Desert. He also won £10,000 for charity in an edition of Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and enjoyed a stint standing in for Chris Moyles' partner, Comedy Dave, on Moyles' Radio 1 show, in April.
In Autumn 2011, Murs co-hosted The X Factor spin-off show, The Xtra Factor, with Caroline Flack, and received warm reviews for his presenting skills. Also in 2011, Murs won Best Male Artist at the BT Digital Awards, Best Album at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards, and switched on the Bristol Christmas Lights to a crowd of 7,000 people, to whom he performed an exclusive set.
Murs supported Gary Barlow at his Royal Albert Hall concerts in December 2011, and is expected to record and release a third album in 2012.
