Olly Murs burst into popularity finishing second on X Factor in 2009 and quickly became a national favourite with four No. 1 singles and a string of TV appearances including becoming a judge on BBC1’s The Voice.

His hit songs include Please Don’t Let Me Go, Heart Skips A Beat, Dance With Me and Troublemaker, all of which reached number one as well as a string of other top selling smash hits including Dear Darlin’, Up and Wrapped Up.

Murs, who released his seventh album, Marry Me, last December, will be supported by the winners of a local talent competition held earlier this year.

The four winners of the Yorkshire’s Greatest Talent competition were unveiled after a pulsating final at the park – with two of the victors from Doncaster.
