The X Factor's Marcus Collins to do battle with The Military Wives in the charts!

Marcus Collins

The Military Wives choir is to go head to head with The X Factor once again this year, with the group putting out a new album against Marcus Collins' debut!

The choir beat X Factor winners Little Mix to score Christmas Number One in December, selling over 500,000 copies of their single in just one week.

Now they're set to compete against show runner up Marcus Collins next month in the Mother's Day charts.

The group will be releasing their debut album in March, the same time Marcus will be releasing his debut record after finishing behind Little Mix on the show.

Member Laura Thompson told Sky News: "It's just amazing, I'm so proud to be part of something that helps other people, I'm in awe."

Susie Brady added: "Obviously we didn't expect any of this so to have a single and an album and to raise so much for charities that are so personal for us - I'm over the moon."
