“I’ve given myself a salary recently, because I think it’s important. For the first two years I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll buy that and this. Mum, what do you want? I’ll get it for you,’” Olly told The Mirror. “But then you watch shows like the Big Reunion and it opens your eyes to realize that this can all go so quickly, and you’ve got to be wise with your money. Even Ed Sheeran talks about paying himself a salary.”

He added, “I’ve never been that kind of person, I always like us all to be on an equal playing field. I like us all to be mates together. I’m a singer, you’re a builder, you’re a plumber, you work in a bank. We all earn different salaries, but we’re all the same. So I always give myself a little salary each month to keep me ticking over. Some artists you see out there buying all these flash cars and big houses. My worst fear is losing everything. I’ve bought my own house, I’ve got a lovely car, I’ve got brilliant friends and family. If I lost all that it would be devastating and down to my stupidity.”
