The 'In Case You Didn't Know' singer says it is his biggest achievement since starring on The X Factor.

Olly Murs says getting the opportunity to star on his own arena tour across the UK is a huge personal achievement for him.

The 'Dance With Me Tonight' singer admits that although The X Factor hasn't produced a large number of successful male solo artists, he feels he still has a lot more to give to the industry. 

"When you do an arena tour it proves you've got a real fan base," Olly told the Daily Star this week. "Being a male artist on The X Factor is tough – there hasn't been many success stories from it.

"I still feel like I have more to achieve, but to get to this point two years after coming off the show means a lot. "

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer also revealed he took inspiration from artists like Justin Timberlake while preparing for his current UK tour. 

He added: "I watched a lot of Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake's 'Justified' tour."

Olly Murs is due to continue his tour tonight (7th February) with a show in Brighton.
