Olly Murs is set to release an "illustrated memoir" called Happy Days.

Publisher Hodder & Stoughton said it would feature brand new and unseen photos of the Essex singer and tell the story of his career so far.

"It's been amazing putting it together," said Olly. "Reminiscing how much my life has changed over the last four years."

The 2009 X Factor runner-up has sold more than four million records and is supporting One Direction in America.

Olly said the book would be a great way to document his "incredible journey" since he first appeared on the ITV show.

Happy Days is due to come out this autumn.

The 28-year-old also recently confirmed he would be returning as a host on The Xtra Factor, as well as doing an arena tour in 2013.
