Marvin from JLS has been talking to a group of kids about when he was bullied at school for wearing glasses.

The X Factor star also chatted about what makes him feel great and how music and catching up with friends keeps him happy.

It's part of a campaign launched by the children's charity Childline to try to get kids chatting about their emotions.

Marvin said: "Most people get bullied at some time in some form... but you should always tell someone."

He also talked about what helps him when he's feeling down.
