A WITHAM singer got the thumbs up when he appeared in the UK's leading TV talent show.

Olly Murs, 25, impressed the X Factor judges with his rendition of the Stevie Wonder hit “Superstition”.

Starmaker Simon Cowell described Olly as “very, very cool” before adding: “It's the easiest yes I've ever given”.

Cheryl Cole said: “You've got some soul in your voice and I loved the moves,” and Dannii Minogue added: “You've got the whole package.”

Olly will now go to X Factor boot camp in his quest to make the last 12 and final live shows.
