The former JLS star is said to be the chosen one to replace Reggie Yates on the hit BBC talent show, according to The Sun. “Marvin is nervous but excited”, a source told the paper. “He’s got a few months to brush up on his presenting skills before the live show, but he’ll go straight into the recorded rounds very soon. Bosses reckon he and Emma will have great chemistry.”
Although we’re sad to see the back of ex-hosts Reggie and Holly Willoughby, who announced their departure from the show last weekend along with judges Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue, we’re pretty excited by the thought of Emma and Marv livening up our Saturday nights.
At least Marv has been boosting his chances by getting some presenting practice in – him and wife Rochelle Humes recently took to the ITV This Morning sofa for a special one-off presenting stint and did a pretty bloomin’ great job if you ask us!
Fingers crossed Marv lands the gig!
