This weekend Little Mix became the first ever group to win The X Factor! Congratulations!
Sadly there can’t be more than one winner and Marcus Collins just missed out on the title. However, if Rebecca Ferguson is anything to go by, it looks like being a runner up isn’t necessarily a bad thing!
Rebecca Ferguson has just been named as the most successful contestant of 2010 after her debut album Heaven had almost three times the amount of pre-orders as winner Matt Cardle’s album!
In fact, X Factor runners up seem to always be in for an exciting future – just look at Olly Murs, JLS and One Direction!
And we’re pretty sure Marcus is going to add to that list very soon!
