EXCLUSIVE | The X Factor star also praises mentor, Gary Barlow...
Collins, who is gearing up to release his second single Gary Barlow, stating that he's still in touch with the Take Thatfrontman, explaining that Gary is keen to continue helping him out with his post-XF career.
When asked if he will be jealous not to be hanging out with Mr. Barlow this year, Marcus claimed: "No, I don’t think I will be jealous, I’ll probably be on the phone asking him what they’re like. I’m gonna be supporting whoever he gets in his category all the way.
"I will still be working with him and something that Gary had written into his contract was that after putting all the work in with us and helping us out on the show, he really wanted to work with the people after the competition and help with artist development."
Collins added: "I think that is something he would really like to go into. He’s always there on the phone if I need him for anything."
