Olly Murs fans who were left disappointed and without much hope of a refund have been offered tickets to two of the singer's alternative show dates.

Promotion company Stephen C Associates left ticket holders stunned last week when they announced that the company had gone into liquidation and Murs' Exeter gig at Powderham Castle was cancelled.

In a statement posted on Twitter Olly Murs told his fans they could attend the Swansea or Portsmouth shows instead next month.

Fans had spent hundreds to see the X Factor star and many were left out of pocket by the cancellation. The company's online statement said it was not in a position to offer a refund. Those who had paid with a credit card could try to claim their money back through their card provider. Those who had paid using a debit card however, were instructed to appeal to the liquidators for a refund from any money left over from closing down Stephen C Associates.
