Marcus Collins could have used X Factor sob story

X Factor runner up Marcus Collins has revealed how he could have used a sob story in the audition process to help him to win the sympathy vote. Yet Marcus decided that it was not the right way to go and wanted to be judged on his talent rather than his history.

Collins explained, "I knew if I said, 'I grew up in a council flat, just me and my mum, we had nothing, my mum's had cancer, I thought I was going to be orphaned and out and on my own', people would be like, 'So what? Sob story, he's just making it up'."
 
He added, "I didn't want to do that. It had nothing to do with anything. Yeah, it just made me work harder, but so what? Everyone works hard. So I was very conscious not to do a big sob story." However, Marcus did not need a sob story to impress, not only the judges but also the British public.
 
Marcus Collins came in for some criticism following the release of his debut single, a cover of The White Stripes track, Seven Nation Army, especially from former X Factor wannabe Cher Lloyd. Marcus Collins will be releasing his debut album on Monday, March 12.
