Not content with having a brother that had a TV programme where he ‘merked’ his fellow international team mates, Anton Ferdinand has revealed that another member of his family could have been responsible for making your ears bleed, by confirming that he could have been a member of boyband JLS, after being best mates with singer Marvin Humes.
“We were the original JLS,” said Ferdinand. “We used to sing a lot together when we were younger and do talent competitions. We had a group of friends that used to go round each other’s houses and sing.”
I think we can all take a big sigh of relief with the news that he in fact chose football instead (or maybe not looking at QPR’s league position). But don’t get too comfortable in your seat, because Anton has not ruled out a return to singing once his football career is over. Play until you are forty, Anton, I urge you.
