Marcus Collins burst onto the music scene last year, when he first auditioned for The X Factor and he has not gone anywhere yet. Marcus was teamed up with Gary Barlow on The X Factor, who acted as his mentor during in the show and now Marcus has admitted that, not only was Gary a great mentor on The X Factor but he has still been there for him since the show ended. Marcus even went as far as to say that Gary Barlow was like a father to him.
Collins explained, "I look up to him like he's my dad. He's unbelievable, such a nice guy. I speak to him all the time — I called the other day just to check in." Marcus then went on to discuss the upcoming X Factor tour, admitting that some of the singers are worried that the fans may have forgotten about them already.
He added, "People are raring to go and don't want to be forgotten." The X Factor tour is set to get underway this Saturday and, as well as starring Marcus Collins, The X Factor tour will also see the return of some familiar faces including Misha B, Janet Devlin, Craig Colton, Johnny Robinson, The Risk, Kitty Brucknell and Amelia Lily.
