Marcus Collins has been getting himself into the papers thanks to a cheeky meme. Some news outlets went to town on the meme in which Marcus Collins seemed to say that the X Factor was fixed.

The meme, which was actually sent to Marcus has caused a mini-meltdown with the Daily Star, Daily Mirror and Digital Spy all reporting that Marcus was saying that the flagship ITV show was a fix.

However, the Liverpool lad has commented on all the attention, slamming the outlets for having a “slow news day”.

He uploaded a picture with the caption,

“My reaction watching the foolishness that’s come off the back of one meme I posted this week! It’s just a funny meme someone sent me. you’ve taken it too far. slow week for 3 national papers. ????”


So what meme did the papers go to town on?


Well, Marcus uploaded a picture with a caption that seemed to suggest that he already knew the outcome of the X Factor final in 2011, in which he came runner-up to Little Mix.


Marcus, he’s a cheeky one isn’t he…
