3. Proof Olly has officially made it... he even landed a cameo in US teen drama 90210 earlier in 2013!

4. And then there was his set at the Summertime Ball in June... that made sure EVERYONE knew summer had well and truly arrived! (Credit: Derek Bremner):

5. Going out on tour with Robbie Williams? Priceless! That fact that he's also one of your BFFs? Even BETTER!


7. Plus Olly made sure to share the love in 2013 and kept up to date with ALL the big events of the year! 

8. The 'Troublemaker' star even got to support his five favourite boys One Direction on tour out in Japan! Just imagine the afterparty with these six!!

9. 2013 was an amazing year to be an Olly fan... especially with the rerelease of 'Right Place Right Time':

10. Olly might have left The Xtra Factor behind him... but that didn't stop him returning for a guest stint helping Gary Barlow out at Judges' Houses in the summer!

11. You better believe recreating Robbie's 'Angels' video for his own hit 'Hand On Heart' must have been a personal highlight for the UK star!
