QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has revealed that he could have had an alternative career – as a member of JLS.
The London-born defender was childhood friends with singer Marvin Humes, and the pair used to regularly sing with each other before one found footballing fame while the other took on The X-Factor.
Ferdinand said: “We were the original JLS
“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’d definitely like to think about a collaboration with them in the future.”
