Former X-Factor finalist Marcus Collins marked another milestone in his life, as he proudly announced his engagement to his boyfriend of six years, Colm Tracey.

The singer, who wowed judges and audiences alike with his powerful vocals on the show’s 2011 season, took to social media to share the delightful news.

Collins initially came to prominence on X-Factor, singing his way into the hearts of millions. The Scouse gentlemen oozed charm and charisma, and in no time, became a household name.

While he didn’t win the competition, Collins’ post X-Factor career was bustling with appearances on various reality TV shows and spellbinding performances on West End productions.

Collins has previously dated Strictly Come Dancing star Robin Windsor who was found dead in a hotel in London last month and paid tribute to his ex on Instagram: “The world just got a lot less sparkly. Robin you were so loved.”

In recent years, the former hairdresser has been vocal about his sexuality and has become a prominent figure in the LGBTQ+ community. He openly shared his life with his boyfriend, helping to normalize representation of same-sex love in the media. Collins’ engagement comes as a heartening update, showing that although his career has had many turns, love has been a constant.

Collins’ sparkling engagement announcement raised the internet’s temperature with the presence of a Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall at their celebration. Collins seems to have not only won the X-factor in his career but also in his love life.

Congratulations, Marcus, we can’t wait to see what this new chapter brings for you. Keep serving us love, loyalty, and unapologetic pride.
