Who does Kelvin play?

From what it appears, Kelvin has a jam-packed episode playing suave Gavin Jackson.

Troubles strikes for his character after his lottery winner wife, Cherry, is found dead at her luxurious villa.

No one was in the house when it happened, and if things weren’t complicated enough Cherry’s body seems to have vanished into thin air.
