Olly Murs says he is not Robbie Williams' dummy

8 years ago918 views



X Factor runner-up Olly Murs has reportedly said that his debut album will not be a rip off of Robbie Williams' style.

He says: "He might be a hero of mine but I don't want to be his dummy".

The 25 year-old singer wants people to realise he is nothing like Robbie Williams and his biggest fear is that fans and critics will compare his work to that of the ex-Take That star.

Olly lost out to Joe McElderry in last year's X Factor and has been working on his debut tracks.

In an 'industry first', Simon Cowell's record label Syco has teamed up with Epic, the same label JLS are with, to release the album.

The release date is yet to be announced.
