Not was he a singer, he was also an established actor, and appeared as a regular cast member in BBC1's Holby City. However, Marvin desperately wanted to make music his career and after recording several tracks, he met Simon at the 2003 'Soccer Six' Industry Football match and handed him a demo tape.
Simon was so impressed with what he heard that he called Marvin straight into the studio. He's now in the band JLS. Ryan Taylor - he has also been singing from an early age.
