JLS's Marvin Humes 'poised' to replace Reggie Yates on The Voice
Tuesday 17 September 2013
JLS star Marvin Humes is poised to sign up as a new presenter on BBC1's The Voice to replace Reggie Yates.
The chart star, who has recently done a presenting stint on This Morning with his wife Rochelle, is understood to be in the final stages of talks with the BBC but is still to officially sign a deal.
His addition would complete a change in the presenting line-up which has also seen Holly Willoughby replaced by Big Brother presenter Emma Willis.
The Voice 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.
Humes 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.
A BBC source confirmed Humes was "poised" to sign up to the show.
