Olly Murs net worth

With five albums and a very lucrative presenting career, there's no doubt that Olly has raked in the cash. In 2017, Caroline Flack’s friend was said to be worth a huge £10 million. 

However, Olly is now being very careful with his money as he told The Mirror back in 2014: “I’ve given myself a salary recently, because I think it’s important. For the first two years I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll buy that and this. Mum, what do you want? I’ll get it for you."

“But then you watch shows like The Big Reunion and it opens your eyes to realise that this can all go so quickly, and you’ve got to be wise with your money.

My worst fear is losing everything. I’ve bought my own house, I’ve got a lovely car, I’ve got brilliant friends and family. If I lost all that it would be devastating and down to my stupidity.”
