Rochelle Humes and Marvin Humes have opened up about working together on The Hit List, explaining how they’re able to avoid any ‘domestics’ and quarrels while filming the game show together.
In 2019, Rochelle and Marvin, who have been married since 2012 and have three children, launched The Hit List, a BBC One show that tests the music knowledge of its contestants.
If the teams of participants are able to correctly identify hit songs in different rounds, they could be in with a chance of winning a cash prize.
While speaking to Metro.co.uk and other media ahead of the launch of the programme’s fourth series, the superstar couple explained what it’s been like to work together on the show for the past two years, the first time they’ve presented as a duo.
Former star of The Saturdays Rochelle said that while it ‘could have ended up as a nightmare’, they have a lot of fun working together, adding that it’s ‘the show we’d be watching if we weren’t hosting it’ as it’s ‘real family entertainment’.
Marvin, who soared to fame as a member of JLS, outlined the advantage of ‘working with the love of your life’, as it means that he can be far more direct with his co-presenter.

‘Do you know what, I think working with the love of your life, you can be so much more direct with each other, so it’s actually probably a bit easier, because if you’re working with someone and you know them but they’re not your partner, you have to go around certain things a bit more, whereas Roche will just tell me “I’m not doing that, I’m not saying that”,’ he said.
Rochelle added that she wouldn’t be as direct with ‘anybody else’ other than Marvin.
‘So it is a lot easier actually,’ Marvin continued, emphasising how much he and Rochelle love going to Glasgow to film.
‘We hate being away from the kids, but it’s also nice just having a few days by ourselves, even though we’re working,’ he said. ‘They’re full on days. We don’t really get to go out and do much, but it is nice being together just the two of us.’
Assessing his work relationship with his partner, Marvin described the pair of them as ‘lucky’, suggesting that their ability to be direct with each other is ‘why it probably works’.
‘We haven’t had no domestics on set or anything like that,’ he said.
‘Not yet. Not yet,’ Rochelle joked in response.
The fourth series of The Hit List is set to launch with a celebrity special, starring comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean, rapper Lady Leshurr, actor Shane Richie, opera singer Russell Watson, The Repair Shop’s Will Kirk and comedian Shazia Mirza.
Will the celebs win big for charity with their music knowledge? Or will the pressure of the game show make them buckle in the moment?
The Hit List returns on Saturday at 7.15pm on BBC One.
