"At the end of the day, what's more important is that I've had two sell-out arena tours and that my album is selling well," Olly revealed to the Daily Star this weekend. "I hope the Brits panel take notice next time as I've no qualms in saying I was gutted.

"But my new album looks like selling better than the first two and that's almost unprecedented for a pop act," the 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer explained. "My hard work has paid off.

"I didn't think the album would sell as well as it has but me and my team like a challenge and I'm a confident guy," Olly added. "I knew once the 'Troublemaker' single hit number one the fans would love the album too."
