After shooting to fame as an X Factor finalist in 2009, Olly Murs became an instant star.

The cheeky Essex-born singer was asked to appear on a celebrity version of Deal Or No Deal, to help raise money for charity.

However, not only has the 27-year-old already appeared on the popular Channel 4 show, he was pretty bad at playing the game.

Olly got his first taste of fame back in 2007 when he was just an unknown face trying to make some quick cash.

The Dance with Me Tonight singer walked away with just 10 after turning down the banker's offer of 26,000.

The charity that he is competing for will be hoping that he makes better choices this time round on the Noel Edmonds presented show.

In an interview with Capital FM, Murs
said: 'It was 2007 when we went on Deal Or No Deal so it's going to be
great fun to go back on it.

He
added: 'Things happened, I did my really bad knee injury, I stopped
playing football and then I started singing and it just all escalated
from there.'

Olly said that
he remembers going back to Essex and feeling low because even people he
didn't know were making fun at his poor performance on the show.

Long face: Olly failed to win big on his first stint on the show and walked away with just 10

The Xtra Factor presenter has had the last laugh, however, with his career going from strength to strength.

He said to the radio station: 'So to come back from that experience now coming back on the show, with all my friends and family going to be there and my mates, and trying to win some money for my charity, Brainwave, that I'm a patron of… I think it could be a huge success.'

Murs will make history, when the show is aired on Sunday, April 22 at 6.25pm on Channel 4, as the first person to appear on it twice.
