Marvin Humes: I'd love to carry on hosting The Voice

ITV can rely on Marvin Humes to carry on presenting 'The Voice' when they take over the series - if they want him.

The pop star search show is moving from the BBC to the network in 2017 and Marvin admits he'd love to continue to host the programme with Emma Willis if the new bosses think they are doing a good job.

In an interview with, Marvin - who is married to The Saturdays star Rochelle Humes - said: "I'd love to carry on doing 'The Voice', 100 per cent. But genuinely, no-one knows what's going on yet. ITV probably want to see how the live shows go as far as keeping me, Emma and the coaches. Once they see how everyone does, they'll have conversations with us.

"I understand that. It'd be great to carry on working with the show, as I love doing it. It feels like home to me. But if I don't get to do it, I'd totally get that. You see change happen on other shows all the time. It's part of the game."

The former JLS singer is looking forward to the start of the live quarter-finals on BBC One this Saturday (26.03.16) and thinks his job is to act as the show's "headmaster" and keep the coaches, Boy George, Paloma Faith, and Ricky Wilson, in check.

Marvin - who is making his own return to music with the release of his new single, 'Best Is Yet To Come', with LuvBug in April - added: "The other day, I had to tell Will to sit in his seat. While I was trying to do a link, he was climbing on everyone's chair and making funny faces at the camera. And trying to keep some semblance of order with George and Paloma is a challenge. They'll keep everyone on their toes when we go live! The rows they had in the blind auditions had to be heavily edited. If 'The Voice' went out in a later time slot, you'd have seen a lot more. Obviously we can't edit the live shows, so that's going to be pretty exciting."
