OCCUPATION: Hairdresser
MENTOR: Gary Barlow

Marcus is a contestant on X Factor 2011.

Marcus was quiet and shy at school but did take part in his school musicals. He is a massive Destiny’s Child fan and he saw them every time they performed in Liverpool and owns all their tour DVDs. It was watching them when he realised that singing and performing is what he wants to do.

Marcus said when finding out he’d made it to the live shows; ‘I really cannot believe I’m through to the live shows. I’m just like a regular lad and I’ve been to LA and I’m now through to the live shows of The X factor, it’s so exciting, I honestly can’t contain myself. I never miss an episode and now I’m part of the show, I can’t take it in. Walking out on stage is going to be unbelievable, I can’t wait for them to say my name.’
