JLS star set for 'Voice' role

Marvin Humes is to present 'The Voice' UK.

The former JLS star - who has four-month-old daughter Alaia-Mai with his wife Rochelle - is set to join Emma Willis as the pair take over from Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates on the third series of the BBC reality singing competition.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Marvin is nervous but excited.

"He's got a few months to brush up on his presenting skills before the live shows, but he'll go straight into the recorded rounds very soon. Bosses reckon he and Emma will have great chemistry."

Holly announced she would be quitting the show after two years to spend more time with her husband Dan Baldwin and their two children, Harry and Belle.

She said previously: "After much consideration, I will not be returning for series three of 'The Voice' UK. I've had two wonderful years on the show, and I feel very privileged to have been a part of it.

"Finding the right balance between my work and family life is my priority and this has contributed to my decision. I look forward to watching the next series from my sofa, and I wish the whole team the

best of luck".

Marvin and Rochelle recently impressed bosses with their presenting stint after they filled in for Holly and Phillip Schofield on the daytime show 'This Morning'.

The pair have previously been approached by ITV and asked to front their own chat show as TV bosses believe they could as successful as husband-and-wife duo Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, who hosted 'This Morning' from 1988 to 2001.
