He said: ‘Everyone is different and everyone’s journey to success is different. I don’t really agree with kids being on social media 24/7, there’s so many fake people on there it’s ridiculous.
‘I’m 23 and I don’t use it in that way. I use it to promote positive changes, other than that I don’t go on it, it’s like a cloud of negativity.’
Marcus also spoke about having role models, saying he wanted to be just like Wayne Rooney as a kid.
Alex asked him: ‘Is it important to have someone to look up to?’
Marcus replied: ‘I always wanted to be like Wayne Rooney and then it got to 13, 14 and was like, is there much point in being Wayne Rooney number two?’
