THE X Factor dream of Witham's Olly Murs remains very much alive and kicking after he secured enough public votes to return to next Saturday's show.

The popular 25-year-old won praise from all judges on the show - particularly from mentor Simon Cowell - for his performance of the Ike and Tina Turner track Fool in Love.

Judge Cheryl Cole described it as his “best performance so far”.

Donning a silver suit, Olly's energetic performance on Saturday featured strong vocals and his now-trademark slick dancing.
