Please don't let yourself go! Olly Murs sports a rounder stomach while enjoying a beach holiday with friends

Everyone piles on the pounds over the festive period and it seems Olly Murs is no different.

The 27-year-old singer was spotted holidaying in the Caribbean today and certainly looked a little rounder.

As he took to the sea in a pair of floral print swimming shorts, Olly didn't seem to care that he was sporting a belly.

The X Factor runner-up, who is enjoying his New Year break with a group of male friends, was keen to get into the water and enjoy the waves.

But it seems even he himself is aware that he's gained some weight over Christmas as he took to Twitter to deny that he was fronting an underwear range.

'Yesssss @sarahmodestmgmt is right!!! NO UNDERWEAR Range!! I was having a joke!! No way could I model!! I'd look at right plonker doing it!!' he wrote.

Olly – who has spent the past few months presenting The Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack – had obviously been looking forward to a well-earned break and some sunshine.

'Finally on Holiday!! Proper buzzing!!' he tweeted on January 2 after spending New Year's Eve in the UK.

And the reason he's more than happy to show off his body in the gorgeous weather is because he's hoping he'll catch a nice colour.

Not long to go: Olly has got less than a month to get into shape for his UK tour which begins on February 1

Olly's second studio album entitled In Case You Didn't Know was released in November last year and reached number one along with the two singles he released from it.
