JLS star Marvin nets Voice role

Marvin Humes would like to do more TV presenting

JLS star Marvin Humes has promised the new series of The Voice will be "bigger and better" after he signed up to replace Reggie Yates as a presenter on the BBC1 show.

The arrival of the chart star, who has recently done a presenting stint on This Morning with his wife Rochelle, completes a change in the presenting line-up which has also seen Holly Willoughby replaced by Big Brother host Emma Willis.

He said: "I'm so excited to be a part of the new series of The Voice. I have always been a big fan of the show and love that musicians are given such a great opportunity to reach such a wide audience.

"I'm thrilled to be working alongside Emma and be part of a new team on The Voice. It's going to be even bigger and better with this new series. I can't wait to start."

The show has also recruited Kylie Minogue as a coach following the departure of Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue. A fourth judge - to sit alongside the returning Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones - has still to be announced.

Marvin will bow out of JLS, whose hits include Everybody In Love and She Makes Me Wanna, in the coming months as the band perform their farewell tour.

He is a veteran of TV talent contests himself, with the group finding fame in the 2008 series of The X Factor.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
