Marvin Humes' wife, Rochelle, is in the running for the coveted presenting job

Husband and wife Marvin and Rochelle Humes could be going head to head

There could be battles in the Humes household if Rochelle lands the coveted Xtra Factor presenting job.

Rochelle, who is one fifth of girl group The Saturdays, is on the shortlist of presenters being considered for the X Factor 2015 spin off show on ITV2.

But the 26-year-old pop star is married to former JLS singer Marvin Humes, 30, who is also a presenter on rival show The Voice on BBC, and things could get tricky at home as they go head to head in the TV singing contests.

The couple, who have a two-year-daughter Alaia Mai, married in 2012, and have presented together on This Morning.

But according to The Sun it is Rochelle who is top of the list to take over from current presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford who is stepping down to concentrate on other projects.

A source told the paper: ‘The decision over who will take over on The Xtra Factor will be made soon and Rochelle is one of the leading contenders.

‘She’s got a lot of presenting experience, she’s funny and likeable, and knows how the pop game works.’
