Pop star and X Factor runner up Olly Murs was turning heads in St Ives at the weekend.

The 29-year-old walked through the town, sampled local fish and chips in the Harbour restaurant on the Wharf, and happily offered to take “selfies” with a number of fans.

The ‘Troublemaker’ singer is pictured here in a selfie - or mobile phone self-portrait - with St Ives web designer Matt Sephton.

Matt said: “The waiter in the Lifeboat Inn told me Olly Murs was in town.

“I was then walking home and there were a group of teen girls outside Harbour Fish and Chips.

“I glanced in the window and I spotted him, so I hung back for a minute and out he came. “He could see people hanging so he offered some selfie photos.

“He took each phone in turn and snapped a photo. He seemed to be with family.

“I didn't say anything to him other than the photo was for my niece!”

The Essex-born star, who was runner up on TV’s The X Factor in 2009, was thought to be in town with family for a wedding.
