Now Marcus Collins has hit the big time (ok, he's had one hit single) he's fending off offers from admirers left, right and centre - including famous names.
The X Factor runner-up has revealed that Gok Wan once went in for the kill after they were introduced by a mutual friend on a night out. But the style queen never got the chance to find out if the Scouser looked good naked (we're here all week) because he turned him down! Ouch.
Oh dear, the 'lovely guy' line. That'll help.
The singer also opened up about the reasons behind his recent split from long-term boyfriend David.
"He wants to move to LA to work and I'm finding a place to rent in London," he told the mag. "I know he'll always be in my life and time will tell what'll happen between us in the long-term.
Marcus - who released his debut album last week - has also been singing the praises of his X Factor mentor, Gary Barlow, after he helped out on his album.
“Gary’s the exec producer on the album," he told The Mirror. "He’s been really involved and written a track for the album. It’s really cool working with him again. He stayed true to his word – he’s a genuine guy.”
