OH my Goodness! In case you didn’t know, Olly Murs is celebrating his birthday with a gift back to fans – tickets to see his near sold-out show at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena!

The X Factor superstar, who turns 28 on Monday, has teamed up with The Star to thank readers for their support after his number one hits Heart Skips A Beat, Please Don’t Let Me Go and Dance With Me Tonight.

Latest single Oh My Godness is another top-20 smash, I’m OK will be his next release and in total he’s already had seven hit singles, two albums and eight music videos.

Murs, who has performed twice at Sheffield’s free Tramlines festival and switched on the Christmas lights at Meadowhall, also sold out Sheffield City Hall. He’s often spoken about his love for the city.

Now he is looking forward to returning with his forthcoming arena tour.

Now to celebrate his birthday, we are giving you the chance to win tickets for the Saturday night show.

The Xtra Factor co-presenter will perform greatest hits and tracks from his third solo album, due out in November. First he will tour American with One Direction,
