Maison Talbooth was delighted to host a visit from Simon Cowell and Olly Murs (of X Factor fame) last week. Olly and Simon were in Colchester as part of his ‘return to Essex’ in the run up to the final of X Factor.

As we all know, Essex obviously voted in force for Olly but unfortunately was pipped at the post by Joe McElderry.

Well done Olly, we thought you were brilliant!
