Melvin presented MTV One's coverage of the BRIT Awards 2010 alongside Rickie Haywood-Williams, and also presented coverage of the BAFTA awards alongside Kimberly Walsh for MTV One.
Melvin has presented two series of intros for Channel 4, interviewing all the new up and coming bands for 2010 and hosted an MTV Leona Lewis special and presented BBC Blast for BBC Two. Melvin was presenting Basil's Swap Shop with Basil Brush in 2008 on Saturday mornings, alongside his days of playing various characters for the long-running show Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow.

On 12 August 2016, it was announced that Odoom would take part in the fourteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing. He was partnered with Janette Manrara. The couple were the first to leave the competition having had the fewest public votes. But in an ironic twist of events Melvin and Janette went on to win the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special. In February 2017, Odoom took part in a celebrity edition of Take Me Out.
A child actor, Melvin performed in a number of theatre productions and even gave speeches to governors for youth council.
