Award-winning pop star Olly Murs has picked up yet another accolade, but not for his singing ability.  

The Witham-born X Factor star was voted the 2014 male Rear of the Year winner in a public poll, seeing off competition from Andy Murray, Idris Elba and Daniel Radcliffe.

He took to Twitter after hearing the news and said: “Thanks to everyone that voted for my a**e. We are both very proud of this award."

Organisers said over ten thousand votes were cast in total, with ex-Countdown star Carol Vorderman winning the female Rear of the Year title for a second year.
