Marvin Humes to sign up for I’m A Celebrity 2023
According to The Sun, the singer-turned-TV presenter is set to join the lineup on ITV’s jungle adventure. His career in the X Factor band and years of primetime presenting will bring in a broad appeal. A source revealed:
Marvin would be a brilliant signing.
Not only is he known to fans of The X Factor and fans of JLS, but the audience for The Hit List and This Morning spans from kids right through older viewers.
And with Rochelle’s backing, he’s got a ready made fan base. He’ll have lots of showbiz stories to tell, too, from his 15 years in the limelight.
The fact he’s remained a bit of a pin-up doesn’t hurt, either, and bosses hope he’ll make use of the jungle shower!
Marvin Humes ended up being a runner up on the 2008 series of X Factor. He married Rochelle four years later, who was also a part of a girl band The Saturdays.The two now host the primetime show - The Hit list on BBC One. Marvin also appeared on The Voice, Children In Need and as a Capital FM DJ in between.
If Marvin agrees to be on the jungle adventure, he and Rochelle will add to the rumours that they are the new ‘Holly and Phil.’ The source added:
ITV has sometimes used the jungle to test out talent on their audience, or boost a star’s profile ahead of future plans on the channel.
Marvin is currently 25-1 outsider for Phil’s This Morning job but his talks for I’m A Celeb will have tongues wagging.
