Olly Murs becomes a millionaire.

Figures for Olly Murs' company Stanley Entertainment show the former X Factor star has made over a million pounds since appearing on the show.

The Please Don't Let Me Go hitmaker - who shot to fame after coming second on The X Factor in 2009 - has seen his earnings rocket into seven figures thanks to his pop career, touring and stint as host of The Xtra Factor.

However, the records from the Essex-boy's company, Stanley Entertainment, only include his earnings until December 2011, which means most of the profits from his recent tour and double platinum-selling album In Case You Didn't Know, aren't included.

A source told The Sun: "Olly is a real grafter - has worked his socks off since he took part in The X Factor.

"He is constantly juggling working on the Xtra Factor, touring and recording new music, so every penny is hard earned."

The former call centre worker - who used to earn just £6 an hour before finding fame - has previously admitted he is careful with his cash.

He said earlier this year: "Am I a millionaire yet? That will hopefully come this year. The difference with me is that I am very conscious of my money and I look after it."

Murs could be set to boost his income even further, as earlier this week, the 28-year-old singer announced the release of his debut album in the US.

He will release Right Place Right Time in America on 4 December through Columbia Record and the record will differ from his third UK release of the same name.

Speaking about the album - which will include his first US single Heart Skips A Beat - he said: "I am so excited that I am getting the chance to release my music in the US.

"Heart Skips A Beat has been a big hit for me around the world, but I never thought I'd be able to bring it to the US!"

Murs will promote the track on Good Morning America on 28 September.
