2. Olly Murs
Arguably the hottest X Factor contestant of all time (to date anyway), we championed Olly Murs to win from his very first audition. The 26-year-old Essex boy just had cool written all over him. Unfortunately he didn’t go on to win the competition, coming runner up to Joe McElderry.
However, a year down the line Olly has two great singles to his name – we love his new single Thinking Of Me, which has just charted at number four. He’s always reminded us of Robbie Williams (an un-married version, but that’s not why we love him), who he performed a duet of Angels with during the final week of the competition.
He’s not only a pretty face, he’s got a great voice too. We’re expecting big things from Mr Murs.
