X Factor star Olly Murs has survived the public vote.

The 25-year-old, of Carraways, Witham, impressed the judges in Saturday's show by performing Take That's Love Ain't Here Anymore and Elton John's Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting.

He got the backing of Westlife manager and judge Louis Walsh who said: "I think you deserve to be in the final three."

Olly described how being in the bottom three last week had left him "bawling" after the show, and gave him a kick up the backside.

He told presenter Dermot O'Leary: "I'm just so happy. I literally gave everything tonight. I came out fighting."
