After spending 17 years trying to be an overnight success, struggling to read or spell due to severe dyslexia and suffering humiliating and cruel bullying, Marcus stared out by working with children who have special needs.

He moved into the performing arts, and there his alter-ego Lady Portia Di’Monte was born. In a ‘Sliding Doors’ moment, he moved into cosmetics where he ran a cancer charity called ‘Look Good Feel Better’ for ten years.

Now he is the first openly gay radio presenter on BBC Radio Ulster, winning a PPI Radio Award for ‘Best Newcomer’ and fronting his own show on the network.
