What does Marvin Humes do?

Over the years, Marvin has been known to be an all-around entertainer. Before rising to high-profile fame, he appeared in Holby City in 2000. For three years, he portrayed the character Robbie Waring for 14 episodes.

Following Holby City, he started a career in music in 2004 and became one-fifth of the pop group VS, who were managed by Blue star Simon Webbe. Even though their debut single, Love You Like Mad, entered the top 10, their following two singles failed to make a big impact. In 2005, they decided to split.

In 2008, Marvin gave music another shot and auditioned for The X Factor in his second group, JLS. The group made it all the way to the final but finished in second place, losing to singer Alexandra Burke.

After The X Factor, JLS signed to Epic Records and became one of the UK’s most successful boy bands. To date, they achieved a number one album and five chart-topping singles, including Beat Again and Everybody In Love. The group toured in arenas and won two BRIT Awards and five MOBOs.

JLS announced their split in 2013, but Marvin remained in the spotlight, reuniting with the boys for a tour before his jungle stint.

Shifting from music to presenting, Marvin served as a host of The Voice UK alongside Emma Willis. Marvin also became a radio presenter for Capital FM. He and his wife, Rochelle Humes, have also presented shows such as Children in Need and This Morning.

Years later, however, when Marvin was in JLS and Rochelle was in The Saturdays, they met again at a club.

“I went to the toilet and my bag was on the chair. He took my phone out of my bag, called himself from my phone and got my number,” Rochelle recalled in an interview. From there, the pair formed a bond, and soon after a relationship sparked.

Yes. Marvin has three children with wife Rochelle. Currently, they have two daughters, Alaia-Mai and Valentina, and a son, Blake.

On November 11, JLS wrapped their most recent tour, Everybody Say JLS: The Hits Tour.

Marvin on ‘hardest time of my life’

Just months before he got with Rochelle, Marvin suffered the ‘hardest time of my life’ as his grandmother sadly passed away following a battle with cancer.

“It was a really strange week because Beat Again went to number one and Nan passed away three days later,” he told The Daily Record in 2012.

“We were all really affected by it. We went through such joy and adulation of having our first number-one single, and then we lost Nan. It was probably the hardest time of my life,” he then said.

It led to the band starting the JLS Foundation which was set up to help a number of charitable causes, including Cancer Research UK.

“She would have been an incredible great-grandma. She had so much love to give, and it’s sad that she won’t meet the baby,” Marvin added.
