Loads of people claim that it doesn't make that much difference compared to getting a 2:1 but surely this isn't the case?

It's a plus. You have to think about it from the eyes of employer.
Having a first class will get you extra points! But it's no substitute for solid work experience and soft-skills earned through doing.
Someone who sat around for three years and got a first class degree versus someone who actively pursued experience, established their own personal brand (their own identity/presence - clean social media), has previous projects and a portfolio under their belt that they can refer back to in interviews.
I think the 2:1 guy would come on top here.
So what would be best? Why not get a first class and get the experience?
