It was a case of 'One Direction, who?' as Olly Murs launched his bid to mimic the boyband's global success.

Murs-mania is sweeping Canada after Olly made his first live TV appearance on MuchMusic's NEW.MUSIC.LIVE yesterday.

The 1D lads appeared on the music show during their promotional trip earlier this year which saw them win over the hearts of American fans.

And it looks like Olly's cheeky-chappy charm has translated over the other side of the Atlantic too, as he showed off his playful side by demonstrating his ball skills on the show.

He's already amassing his own group of crazed fans too and he treated one of them to a slow dance.

Hundreds of other girls had turned up outside the show's studios to catch a glimpse of him.

"Loved seeing the fans at Music Live today!!! Thanks for coming down...I hope you liked the wiggles!" he wrote on Twitter after his appearance.

Olly is settling into life on tour with One Direction nicely too.

In between his support slot on their Up All Night Tour, he's been hanging out with the lads, jamming on their guitars.

Olly performed an acoustic version of Heart Skips A Beat with Niall Horan backstage at the band's recent gig in Toronto, which he posted up on his Twitter page.
