Olly Murs has hit the big time and become one of the richest stars to come out of the UK X Factor competition. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy right?
The cheeky chappy was runner up on the 2009 series of the ITV show and has went on to forge a music career both in Britain and America.
He’s also turned his hand to TV work, presenting The Xtra Factor for two years and in 2013 he joined music superstar Robbie Williams for his Europe wide Take The Crown stadium tour.
The Sun reports that Olly withdrew a massive £1,988,529 from his company Stanley Entertainments Limited recently and left £600,000 of a working balance in the account.
Olly’s biggest purchase since finding fame has been his London flat, but he’s careful with money and refrains from splashing out on a designer wardrobe and flaw cars. It’s all paying off now!
Meanwhile fellow X Factor star Diana Vickers has been heaping praise on the ‘grounded’ lads of One Direction this week.
The stunning singer turned model still giggles when she thinks of Harry Styles’ comments to Matt Cardle on the 2010 final of the ITV show and told Now magazine that she still considers the hunk a ‘total legend’ for his banter.
The blonde beauty is eternally grateful to Niall Horan too, after he suggested that she sing the song on the ad for their first fragrance – Our Moment – last year. However before Directioners get their knickers in a twist, she definitely does NOT fancy any of the band and has eyes only for her long term boyfriend George Craig.
Lastly, Shayne Ward has revealed that he still loves his ex girlfriend Faye McKeever.
The pair announced their split recently, after dating for ten long years and the That’s My Goal hitmaker told The Mirror that he’s still struggling to cope with the breakup. He said:
“It was hard to deal with. I still absolutely love her to bits.”
Shayne blames the pressure of the music and showbiz industry for their separation and says he wants to ‘take a leaf’ from former boss Simon Cowell who is renowned for staying friends with his exes.
Here’s hoping Ward isn’t planning to start his own harem!
