X Factor runner up Marcus Collins has revealed how he broke up with long-term boyfriend David Heath due to their long-distance relationship.

The singer, currently travelling the UK and Ireland as part of this year’s X Factor tour, said that living 200 miles apart wasn't working out for them.

Marcus has been seeing David, himself an X Factor finalist from 2006 group Eton Road, for four years.

The 23-year-old insisted: "We are still the best of friends. We are working in different cities."

24-year-old David currently spends his time running a dance school in Liverpool, while Marcus is now based in London to work on his debut album and singles.
