Olly Murs launched Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball this evening at London's O2 Arena with a performance of all of his biggest chart hits.

The 'In Case You Didn't Know' singer appeared on stage after a countdown to launch the Jingle Bell Ball and made his way out to heavy cheering from the sold-out arena crowd.

Olly kicked off his set with a performance of 2010 single 'Thinking Of Me', and quickly got the crowd waving along to the ska-inspired track.

The singer, dressed in a black trilby and red-and-white checked shirt, gave a quick pirouette to finish off his opening number.

"O2 How are you guys tonight?" Olly said. "It's amazing to be here, thank you Capital!

"I've just motorbiked across London to get here. Crazy. Let's liven this up!"

Olly then sang debut single 'Don't Let Me Go', much to the delight of the his fans, and performed in front of a pop art style montage on the stage.

After treating the O2 Arena to a bit of moonwalking Olly then moved on to give a rendition of his love song 'Heart On My Sleeve', released earlier this year as a single from his self-titled first album.

"I've warmed you up and now I'm gonna slow it down for all you lovely ladies," Olly told the crowd.

A performance of new single 'Dance With Me Tonight' got the audience dancing along with the former The X Factor star, before Olly introduced a couple of special guests ready for his final song of the night.
