Olly Murs

The story of how Olly Murs made his way to being the best performer/singer of all time


1. In the beginning

   In the beginning Olly was just an Essex boy, with a normal family-made up of his parents, his twin,Ben, and his sister, Fay. He was born on the 14th of May 1984, to his very lucky parents, Vicki-Lynn and Peter Murs. He and his siblings attended Howbridge Junior School in Witham and Notley High School in Braintree, he was a striker in the schools football team.Before he knew that he wanted a career in music and TV presenting, he wanted to be a professional footballer for Manchester United as he is a massive fan of Manchester United. Unfortanatly due to a football injury to his knee he had to say goodbye to his dreams.

   When Murs went to audition the first time-for the X Factor-he worked as a recruitment consultant at Prime Appointments, however this was not what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, as he realised that he wanted to do something better with his life. When he went to audition for the X Factor for the first time he was told to try again next year as they didn't think he was ready to perform. However, after being told that he wasn't ready made Olly go into a great sad feeling. His Mother couldn't bear to see him in such a state, so to try and cheer him up she applied him for Deal or No Deal. A few weeks later a letter arrived for Olly saying that they would like him to appear on the show. Luckily he got chosen to actually play Deal or No Deal. However unfortanatly for him he only won £10.Murs then decided to have another go at the X Factor as he felt like he had so much more too offer then he did last year. So yet again he went through the whole proccess and got told that they still didn't think that he was quite ready. Olly went back to being depressed again. In 2008 he went on a long holiday to Austraillia as nothing had gone his way and he needed to get away for a while. It was upon his return that he wanted to have one last final go at the X-Factor. So he went back yet again and did one last final audition. This time things finally went his way and he got throught to the second and to third where he found out that he would be performing LIVE in front of the judges.
