Olly Murs Memoir? Really?

Hodder has announced that they will be publishing the memoirs of X-Factor finalist Olly Murs.  Happy Days will be published in the autumn and will undoubtedly receive a big push around Christmas as tweens beg for information on their hero.  I’ve got nothing against the hat wearing pop muppet but really?  I must be getting old but I remember the days when it took people years before they wrote their memoirs.  What’s Olly got to say? “I sang on telly, now I sing a bit more, too soon to know if I’ll be forgotten before this book is released.”

Good luck to Olly for trying to milk his fifteen minutes of fame – I would too.  But I’m still rolling my eyes at the nonsense of it all.

  1. I’m sure it will be more interesting that the memoir of Pudsey the dog, also being published soon. *rolls eyes*

    • Oh good grief. I normally approve of anything that gets young people reading but this is just ridiculous.

  2. Awful human being. I will look forward to seeing his book overwhelming charity shop shelves in 2014.
