X FACTOR runner-up Marcus Collins is to perform at The Playhouse in Weston.

Marcus Collins came second to girl band Little Mix in the eighth series of the competition in 2011.

The star will be performing alongside his seven-piece band with a collection of Motown classics and new material from his second album.

His first single was a cover of The White Stripes hit Seven Nation Army, which rose to number nine in the UK singles chart.

His self-titled debut album peaked at number seven.

The singer also achieved success on the stage when he starred as Seaweed Stubbs in the 2013 tour of the hit musical Hairspray.

Since then he has been busy writing material for his second album.

The gig will take place at 7.30pm on September 17. Tickets, priced £21.50, are available from www.parkwoodtheatres.co.uk
