The 'Busy' star admits it would have been nice to have become successful back in his teenage years.

Olly Murs has revealed the one thing he wishes he could change about his life is finding success in the music industry at a younger age.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer rose to fame on the 2009 series of The X Factor UK at the age of 25, and admits he wishes he could have achieved chart success back in his late teens.

"If I could change anything about the advice I was given, I just wish that I was able to have done this a lot earlier," Olly revealed to Grammy.com. "I don't have any regrets, but if there was one thing I would have loved to have done, it's that I would have loved to have gotten it at a younger age."

The 'Dance With Me Tonight' star went on to explain that he never felt music was a career he could follow as a teenager, until finding he had a talent for it in his early twenties.

"It felt when I was growing up that sport was, like, the only thing you should do, if you do music you're really different and a bit weird."

Olly Murs' newly announced biography Happy Days is due to be published by Coronet on 11th October.
