Marcel Somerville is hoping to bag his own show in which he can be a life coach
Marcel Somerville wants his own agony uncle-style TV show.
The Blazin' Squad singer thinks he's a good "life coach", and after dispensing advice to his fellow contestants on 'Love Island', he'd like to take things even further.
He told heat magazine: "During my time in the villa, I was giving a lot of people advice and the Dr. Marcel thing kicked off.
"Every person I've spoken to since the show has asked me for advice and stuff, so it's going to follow me for the rest of my life.
"My mates have always come to me for words of wisdom in regards to relationships and life in general. I'm quite a good life coach.
"I met Jeremy Kyle, who said, 'If you and Gabs don't work out, come on my show'.
"I think I'm too nice to do Jeremy Kyle - maybe I could do the Marcel version of 'Trisha'."
Marcel - who is dating fellow 'Love Island' star Gabby Allen - will release his own book of relationship advice, 'Dr. Marcel's Little Book of Big Love' later this week, and recently admitted he is very excited to be a "guru to the nation".
He said: "I've always been the one my friends would go to for romantic advice, so being able to be a guru to the nation is an exciting prospect. 'Dr Marcel's Little Book of Big Love' is gonna share all my knowledge and all the things I learned during my 'Love Island' experience."
Marcel first announced the news of his book on Twitter.
He posted last month: "News!! I'm excited to announce I am releasing my own book in August with Blink Publishing, 'Dr Marcel's Little Book of Big Love' #LoveIsland (sic)"
