Mark Byron became one of the most talked about contestants in this year’s Big Brother – but do you remember when he auditioned for The X Factor back in 2011?

It seems as Mark Byron has a bit of a reality TV streak in him as this video of him auditioning for The X Factor show.

He auditioned in front of Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Louis Walsh and Tulisa, with an out of tune rendition of Rihanna’s Only Girl In The World. After getting 4 No votes Mark vowed to ‘leave the country!’

Mark was booted out the Big Brother house on Friday in a surprise double eviction with Winston.
